Strategic Refining and the Shifting Global Market for Oil Products

Chatham House, London


Johannes Benigni, Managing Director, JBC Energy, Vienna


The combination of rapid economic and demographic growth in Asia set against a long-term slow-down and increasing carbon emissions regulation in the Atlantic region has resulted in a paradigm shift in global energy demand. At this meeting, energy market expert Johannes Benigni will discuss the development of oil demand growth and refining capacity to markets East of Suez and what this will mean for the downstream industries in North America and Europe. He will also look at how the changing demand for different oil products is affecting price and investment choices. The roundtable will be a chance to discuss some of the wider implications of these changes from an economic and geopolitical perspective.

Johannes Benigni is Managing Director of JBC Energy GmbH in Vienna, Austria. Mr Benigni founded the company in the early 1990s, focusing mainly on oil brokering in Central and Eastern Europe. Over the years Mr Benigni has steered the company away from oil brokering to specialise in consulting, research, and training.
