Refinery operations - October 2017

Source: OPEC 11/5/2017, Location: Europe

In the US, refinery throughput took a plunge, as US Gulf Coast (USGC) refinery utilization rates decreased due to shut downs caused by Hurricane Harvey, as well as planned maintenance, which led to reduced crude input levels. Average US refinery utilisation dropped by 12 pp to 83.2% in September.

With the landfall of Hurricane Harvey, refinery runs plunged to 14.4 mb/d in the week of 8 September, which was further exacerbated by the onset of the refinery maintenance season. By the week ending 22 September, refinery runs had recovered to 16.4 mb/d and continued broadly unchanged into the week ending 29 September. Compared with previous hurricanes, this shows a much faster rebound in refinery inputs, as out of 20 affected refineries, 15 had already returned to operation.

European refinery utilization rates increased from 90.72% in August to 91.00% in September, corresponding to throughput of 10.5 mb/d.

In Asia, Japan refinery utilization dropped by 5.6 pp from 95.75% to 90.13%, corresponding to refinery runs of 3.17 mb/d. Singapore refinery runs increased by 2 pp to 90.1%. Overall, the Asian market remained almost flat, despite product export opportunities to Europe being offset by refinery maintenance.
