Global olefins production is seeing huge changes in feedstock, technology and downstream demand. The shale surge in the US has not only made the economics of ethane cracking there as attractive as in the Mideast Gulf, it is also resulting in an abundance of light naphtha for use in chemical production globally.

There is also considerable investment in alternate technologies to produce olefins. This is borne out by propane dehydrogenation (PDH) investment in China, the US shale boom lifting LPG supplies and methanol-to-olefins (MTO) becoming a significant portion of Chinese olefins production. What will olefins production economics and competitiveness look like in the next few years and how will it affect investment and demand in the downstream markets?

Conference Highlights:

Changing feedstock, investment and olefins production economics in the US
Asian olefins markets – how naphtha-based supplies stack up versus PDH/MTO
LPG – will future supplies support PDH plants?
MTO – will this be the game changer in Chinese olefins market?
What the Mideast Gulf needs to retain its market leadership in the sector
Can Europe step up to the new challenges from Asia?
Olefins shipping – is it ready for the new olefins global trade dynamics?
The impact of changes on key downstream markets – polymers, MEG and others
