US shale to impact global balance of petrochemical feedstocks

Featuring Richard Swann, Andrew Allan & Hetain Mistry

March 3, 2014 14:01:00 EST (13:22 mins)

In this video Richard Swann, Andrew Allan and Hetain Mistry discuss how the US natural gas boom and its resulting cheap, plentiful ethane has not only revived the American petrochemical industry, but it also has wide-reaching consequences on global feedstock supply and demand, with specific regard to US ethylene exports, and naphtha in Europe; and the potential growth in demand for naphtha in the Middle East.
