And that is only a small pattern of our matter areasâ€”that is in reality an enormous e-book!
The e-book is organized across the oil and fuel business worth chain. The business worth chain begins with exploration and ends with merchandise bought to customers, comparable to gasoline, heating oil, pure fuel for heating and energy technology, and 1000’s of petrochemical merchandise. We clarify the completely different enterprise segments
within the worth chain, comparable to exploration, improvement, manufacturing, crude oil advertising, refining, refined product advertising, the pure fuel and liquefied pure fuel companies, and the petrochemicals sector. For every section, we talk about the enterprise and aggressive facets, with the purpose of understanding aggressive dynamics, key enterprise and monetary drivers, bases for aggressive benefit, primary opponents, and business aggressive challenges. We additionally talk about a lot of NOCs and their evolving position within the business and present some predictions about the way forward for oil and fuel.
We now have tried to make the e-book as related, well timed, and accessible as doable. Every chapter consists of many actual business examples and case research.
