Asian Benchmark- Singapore Gross Refining Margin(GRM) has touched an all-time high of USD 25.2 per barrel driven by the sudden surge in refined fuel products demand globally.

The disparity arises due to supply chain disruption on account of sanctions on Russia, non-exports of Chinese refined products and supply chain disruptions. GRM is the margin earned by refiners on the conversion of crude oil into refined fuel products. The trajectory for GRM has been steep in last few quarters from USD 2 per barrel to USD 20 per barrel jumping 9X YoY, until recently when it touched USD 25.2 per barrel.
