Effects of COVID-19

The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic continue to be far-reaching for the global commodity markets. The predicted decline in US crude oil production will limit the available supply of NGLs, which are key feedstocks for the US ethylene industry, which in turn will reduce the North American cost advantage in producing polyethylene and other derivatives.

Download the latest presentation by the vice-president of Petrochemicals Consulting, Steve Weber, in which he discusses some of the factors that will affect the US petrochemicals industry.

Topics to be covered in the presentation include: 

Declining US oil production

Declining US crude oil production and how it will affect LPG supplies 

US’ reduced competitive advantage

The US’ reduced competitive advantage in producing ethylene and polyethylene

US propylene markets

The US’ reduced competitive advantage in producing ethylene and polyethylene
