TIPPING THE SCALE:

LATIN AMERICA REFINED PRODUCT MARKETS AND THEIR IMPACT ON
THE AMERICAS, THE ATLANTIC BASIN, AND EAST OF SUEZ T0 2020

Latin America and the Caribbean has emerged as major refined product importing region, propping up the global product markets over the past five years.
This study provides forecasts of refined product supply/demand and balances and identifies the products and markets within Latin America and the Caribbean where this trend will continue, slow, and/ or be reversed through 2020.
Also, it demonstrates how regional balances will impact global product markets through 2020

This Study Includes:

  • A bottom-up analysis of refined product supply and demand by country and by four sub-regions:
    • Mexico
    • Caribbean Basin
    • Atlantic South America
    • Pacific South America
  • Forecasting the region’s balances to 2020 for:
    • Gasoline
    • Diesel
    • Fuel Oil
    • Naptha
    • LPG
    • Jet Fuel
  • Outlook on refinery capacity, construction, expansion and reconfiguration projects that serves as the basis for refined product supply predictions in four key sub-regional markets
  • Projection of refined product deficits that include a division of gasoline and diesel balances by sulfur content
  • Latin America and the Caribbean refined product balance forecasts in context of markets in the Americas, the Atlantic Basin and East of Suez for product supply-demand fundamentals and prices through the end of the decade

Questions that will be answered in this study:

  • Region-wide:
    • When and how will refinery expansion and upgrading projects impact supply?
    • How will demand in large gasoline and diesel consumers tip product balances?
    • How will policy changes influence sulfur specifications?
    • Which countries will emerge as airline hubs with jet fuel market potential?
  • Mexico:
    • Will Mexico remain a sink for gasoline exports from the U.S. Gulf Coast?
    • How much fuel oil will Mexico place in international markets?
  • Caribbean Basin
    • What will be the import demand for naphtha-based diluent needed for crude oil upgrading?
    • Will LPG demand provide a big enough market for U.S. exports, or will surpluses move to Asia?
  • Atlantic South America
    • Will Brazil and Argentina reverse widening transportation fuel deficits?
    • How will refinery projects and biofuels use change import demand?
  • Pacific South America
    • Will Chinese investment have an impact on refining capacity and product supply?
    • How much jet fuel and diesel will be required to fill deficits in Chile, Ecuador and Peru?
