HOUSTON (ICIS)--Dow Chemical is evaluating shipping low-cost propane from the US to its flexi-crackers in Europe, particularly its plant in Terneuzen in the Netherlands, the company's chief executive said on Thursday.
"Can we take LPG from low-cost jurisdictions into those crackers? The answer is yes," said Andrew Liveris, Dow CEO. He made his comments during an earnings conference call.
"We are evaluating that sort of thing," he said.
The key issue, though, is the availability of export terminals, especially for propane, Liveris said. "But we are looking into it, for Terneuzen in particular."
