Our expertise

Refining, trading and supply

Our refining, trading and supply practice covers business processes from crude acquisition through to product distribution.

The current volatile oil price environment and structural changes taking place in the downstream industry will present a number of challenges for refiners and marketers.

Industry refining margins will remain uncertain for the next several years, and consequently, the winners in the sector are likely to be those who are creative in delivering added value, as well as being aggressive in reducing their costs. We focus on supporting these two dimensions of improvement for our clients.

Commercial fuels and specialities

Our commercial fuels and specialities practice provides expertise for the different products, infrastructure and markets.

Commercial fuels and specialities are probably the most competitive part of the downstream market. Every efficiency, opportunity and advantage needs to be captured. The level of operational, strategic and marketing capability needed to win requires an organisation to develop truly integrated strategies and plans. Beyond asset development and utilisation, market, customer, safety and regulatory impacts all demand attention.

RPS offers what is probably the most complete range of services in the business, ranging from strategy definition or review, market entry and convenience store development, to merchandising and store operation audit.
