Refineries hit a sweet spot-II: There are risks too
Jan 06: The future of the refining industry seems bright at this moment as disruptive technology such as electric cars and battery based power will only begin to bite at a later point in time.

8Common carrier access to the product pipelines and other marketing infrastructure of the OMCs could lead to much faster penetration of non-OMCs into fuel retailing.
