China's oil products production rise in 2016.

2016 refined oil products production growth (1.1%) was in line with its long-term trend (1%)

2016 growth was driven by the Asian and the Middle East countries, in particular China, Saudi Arabia and the UAE that have commissioned several new refineries in recent years.
Petroleum products production dipped in Mexico and Venezuela resulting from low refined oil products demand in 2016.
Refinery closures over the past years in Europe combined with the willingness of Middle East countries to refine crude oil locally and low refining costs in the North America led to a stable production of refined oil in Europe despite the rise in the consumption.
