Platts Oil

Join us amongst the skyscrapers of Dubai for a packed agenda of updates and the latest insights on both Middle Eastern and global oil markets. Our respected editors will be on-hand to share their analysis and join delegates in conversation on the key issues.

We'll provide updates on Platts crude oil benchmarks, including developments to our Middle East refined products price assessments. We’ll also examine trends in global oil markets, and take a close look at the impact of International Maritime Organization’s 2020 sulfur cap on marine fuel markets and associated benchmarks.

Networking will be at the heart of this free event, and there will be plenty of time to talk with colleagues and make new contacts during the breaks and over a delicious lunch. This is a great opportunity to exchange views, and increase your understanding of the latest developments in the Middle East and global markets.
