Future Refinery Projects Change to Comply with Net Zero Targets

Oil refiners will have to review future projects and spending due to fuel production’s transition to net zero emissions by 2050. Refiners will look to build smaller and more modular projects in the future.

It is estimated that in the 2030s, 70% of the $164 billion that will be spent on capital projects will go to biofuels and carbon reduction, most of which will be in the United States and Europe.

However, a possible hike in inflation rate as a result of the spending will be a challenge for the country. The figure means there is a considerable increase from the government and central bank’s earlier agreement that the spending would be 1.6 trillion roubles.

Pandemic Forces Companies to Change Supply Chain Strategy

After almost two years into the pandemic that has hit supply chains across the globe, U.S. companies have not only been trying to meet demand but they also move to refill inventories.
