Demand, Prices & the Refining Industry

This book of essays analyses the behaviour of demand for petroleum products in Europe, the structure of European refining and the patterns of investment and disinvestment in refining, the characteristics of capacity utilization in refining and of the marginal refining yield, the determinants of product price movement and their relationship to crude oil price behaviour and finally the characteristics and change over time of petroleum product taxation in Europe. The first chapter provides a summary presentation of the findings, a synthetic view of their relationships to one another and a brief discussion about future developments.

The analysis and findings in the essays collected here relate to the major concerns of oil companies in Europe, oil-producing countries interested in expanding their activities downstream in Europe, governments and organizations of states, and the oft-forgotten final consumers.
