“Bitumen in Europe moves to the East” — DYM Resources reports at the Argus Africa Roads Conference

“Production of Bitumen in Europe moves to the East” — DYM Resources Speaks at the Argus Africa Roads 2019 Conference

DYM Resources will make a report on the bitumen industry in Europe, Russia and CIS at the Argus Africa Roads Conference 2019. The Conference takes place from June 26th to 27th  in Nairobi, Kenia.

“The new IMO 2020 restrictions will reduce demand for high-sulfur fuel oil and lead to changes in the oil market. Some European refineries have already refocused on refining light oil products from fuel oil, while refineries in Russia and CIS tend to produce more bitumen”, DYM Resources managing director Yury Burenko says. “Moreover, the bitumen duty in Russia is expected to fall from 100 USD/Mt to 0 USD/Mt in the next 5 years, as the Russian tax system changes. This will also encourage production of bitumen.”

The report from DYM Resources will also include the following issues:

— How regulatory changes will affect on the bitumen market in Europe, Russia, and CIS in terms of production, quality and price.

— Available capacities in Russia and CIS – can Russia increase bitumen production taking into account IMO 2020 restrictions and falling fuel oil demand?

— What are the logistical problems and bottlenecks for bitumen exports from Russia?

— Intraregional trade flows are geopolitical difficulties and dependencies.

Other industry speakers will address a range of topics including updates on the road and bitumen infrastructure in East Africa:

—  Road developments and investments in East Africa, focusing on Kenya and Tanzania.

— Impact of Iranian sanctions and alternative supply sources for east African road projects.

— Growing appetite for bitumen and bitumen infrastructure in east Africa.

The participants will include delegates from Shell, MENA Energy, Cinergy, TEC Container Solutions and others.

Russian base oils

DYM Resources Speaks on Russian Base Oils Competitiveness at Argus Iran Conference

DYM Resources project manager Denis Varaksin spoke at the Argus Iran Base Oils and Lubricants Conference in Tehran, discussing how Russian base oils and other former Soviet Union base oils will compete with Iranian base oils in a post-sanctions world.

“Heavy grades like SN 900, SN 1200 and Bright Stock from Russia will be still competitive, as supplies of high viscosity products in the region are still tight,” Varaksin said.

“A new supply of Group II and Group III from Russia is entering the market due to its high quality and low prices,” he added.

At the same time, Russian Group I base oils are losing market share in the United Arab Emirates and India, due to growing Iranian supplies after the easing of sanctions, according to DYM research.

Turkmenistan base oils have become more attractive to the Iranian and UAE markets after the launch of a new railroad line via Gorgan, Iran along the Caspian Sea. This new line cuts delivery times and costs for Turkmenistan SN 180, SN 350 and SN 600 base oils.

DYM Resources is an independent international base oils and slack wax supplier focused on products from Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Iran.
