This report tested supply capacity in the region under two hypothetical refinery rationalisation scenarios in Australia and considered the following questions as key:

  • What is the likely outlook for refining in the Asia Pacific region and for the availability of Australian quality refined product
  • What are the likely structural changes to Australian import/export supply chains for refined products
  • The nature of any potential energy security impacts.
