While the overall mood of refiners and petrochemical producers is generally very positive, there are a number of developments that require industry players to respond and adapt, both to take advantage of new opportunities and also to avoid potential problems. For example, the effects of increased crude petroleum production from U.S. shale deposits, coupled with the effects of the higher crude exports over the past two years, are still resounding throughout the refining and petrochemical sectors, forcing refiners to strategize based on a new set of rules for the crude oil landscape.
