Following the peak of the global refinery maintenance season, which had more than 6 mb/d of capacity off-line in October, throughputs have been on the rise during November. Refinery utilization in the US averaged around 88%, corresponding to 16.2 mb/d, up by around 650 tb/d versus the previous month, but 140 tb/d lower than in the same month a year ago. This y-o-y drop came on the back of the impact of the Colonial Pipeline outage on some refineries in the USGC, despite refinery maintenance season ending.

European refinery runs averaged around 90% of capacity in November, corresponding to a throughput of 10.7 mb/d, which was around 190 tb/d higher than in the previous month and up by 280 tb/d from the same month a year ago, as refinery throughputs were on the rise following the end of the maintenance season in Europe.

In Asia, refinery utilization rates have been on the rise, following the peak refinery maintenance in the region. Refinery runs in India averaged almost 5 mb/d during October, around 150 tb/d higher than the previous month. Meanwhile Chinese refineries throughputs averaged over 11 mb/d during October, increasing 360 tb/d versus the previous month and hitting a new record-high level, following maintenance seen at several teapots refineries, and taking advantage of export quotas and stronger seasonal demand within the Asian region. Refinery runs in Singapore for October averaged around 90%, similar to the previous month, while Japanese throughput averaged 87% of capacity in November, 9 pp higher than the previous month, when several refineries were in maintenance.
