Re-refining in North America: Drivers for Growth

Presented by Blake Eskew
Vice President
IHS Downstream Energy Research and Consulting

The North American re-refining industry is driven by trends in lubricants markets, base oil markets, fuels markets, and the changing competitive landscape. Tight oil and gas development is changing the fundamentals of crude oil and natural gas supply as well as fuels refinery competitiveness. Product exports are robust, but the outlook for domestic consumption is weak. This presentation will address these and other key trends and drivers shaping the outlook for North American re-refining.
