Summary

"North America Refining Industry to 2013: Investment Opportunities, Analysis and Forecasts of All Active and Planned Refineries in North America," is the latest report from GlobalData, the industry analysis specialists, that offers comprehensive information on the North American refining market. It is an in-depth source of information on all active and planned refineries, refining margins and key trends and issues in the North American refining industry. The research also offers market share analysis of major refining companies in the region.

According to the report, driven by stringent regulations on emissions for petroleum products, expansion of refining capacity in North America will primarily be through addition of secondary conversion units. Coking capacity in the region will increase from 125.86 Million Tonnes per Annum (MMTPA) in 2008 to 148.88 MMTPA in 2013 at an AAGR of 3.36%.

However, lower gasoline demand in North America due to people shifting to diesel vehicles or more fuel efficient cars has led to the closure of main processing units like FCC and coking units in several refineries. This, in turn, has reduced throughput leading to low level of capacity utilization of around 81% in North America.

Scope

The report provides detailed information and analysis on refining capacities, margins, market shares of key companies and competitive scenario in the North American refining market. Its scope includes:

--  Crude distillation and other major unit capacities of 165 active
    refineries
--  Information on distillation and other unit capacity additions through
    commissioning of new units and expansion of existing units
--  Annual information covering historic data from 2000 to 2008 and
    forecasts till 2013
--  Covers information on refineries in the United States and Canada
--  Quarterly Gross Refinery Margin trends for US Gulf Coast, US West
    Coast and US East Coast markets from Q4, 2004 to Q2, 2009
