Crude Oil Quality Trends: Too light & too sweet?

Tuesday, March 12

03:00 pm - 03:50 pm

Since 2012, global crude quality has shifted to a lighter slate. Sour crudes will become tighter in the near term due to combined effects of the Venezuela supply drop and tumbling Iranian exports. How will crude importers be impacted by changes in global trade patterns? Can refiners easily absorb new crude qualities? This Lyceum Lab will explore these and related questions.
