Egypt is currently the largest oil producer in Africa outside of OPEC and the second largest natural gas producer after Algeria. Egypt, having already taken on a major role in international energy markets is now seeking to get its downstream industry back on track.
Egypt has great potential when it comes to refining and petrochemicals. It is an important transit route, offering great potential to become a hub for petroleum products. Nonetheless, since the Arab spring uprising of 2011 that saw the overthrowing of President Hosni Mubarak, great tolls have been taken on the domestic oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
During the past 12 months, prices in the $3-trillion-plus global downstream market have fallen 40% reaching the lowest level since June 2009, when global markets were recovering from the 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers. By assembling insights from key refining and petrochemical companies globally, we have created an in-depth report to enable you to benchmark, analyse trends, learn from challenges being encountered in different regions and identify a strategy that can be implemented into your own business.
This report collates insights from experts within in the region’s oil and gas industry to enable you to assess the risk vs. reward potential of investing in North Africa’s downstream industry.
The World Refining Association is committed to creating high quality, strategic and technical conferences across the globe. We also recognise your need for pioneering industry content throughout the year. It’s for this reason that World Refining Association has produced this report, to enable knowledge sharing and learning on a topic as important to the industry as this.
