Octane Value Forum: Understanding the Future Solutions to Higher Octane Fuel Needs — October 25-26, 2017 — Houston, TX

Octane Value Forum: Understanding the Future Solutions to Higher Octane Fuel Needs   —   October 25-26, 2017   —   Houston, TX

When it comes to the octane value chain, the stakes have never been higher. Automakers and fuel suppliers are quietly researching what fuel blends they’ll need to meet much tougher CAFÉ standards into the next decade. Refiners are looking to retain or even expand traditional blends and on the other side of the coin, agricultural companies believe that higher octane engines may bring explosive growth for ethanol.

Add to this, the potential for new “drop in” fuels or additives and the possibility of standalone high octane components and you have a dynamic, rapidly changing marketplace in which reliable information and analysis can be the difference between success and failure.

If you haven’t been paying attention to the future needs for more octane, the OPIS Octane Value Forum is your opportunity to catch up and see how new mixtures and formulae will alter the supply and pricing chain.

This two-day conference will put attendees ahead of supply and demand paths that might have more curves than a Grand Prix race track in the next dozen years. Topics to be covered include:

  • Changing crude slates and their effect on octane components
  • Ethanol’s fit into the equation moving forward
  • Perspective from the automaker on higher compression engines
  • Tougher CAFÉ standards – the winner and the losers
  • Infrastructure challenges and equipment upgrades
  • The impact of octane on the import and export markets on the coasts
  • And much more!   READ MORE
