US shale gas and the impact on global petrochemicals

US shale gas has revitalized the US petrochemical sector, triggering an unprecedented project boom. From olefins, polyolefins, and methanol, to intermediates and downstream chemicals, capacities are set to soar.

Beyond the US, shale gas will have a ripple effect across global petrochemical markets, as players adjust to a new, growing leader in cost position. As the US ramps up capacity with a heavy project slate the challenges will be considerable, especially on engineering & construction (E&C), with the risk of labour shortages and cost overruns.

The ICIS webinar on shale gas, the US project boom, and impact on global petrochemicals will discuss the following topics:

  • Macroeconomic outlook
  • US cost advantage vs Europe and Asia
  • US projects update – ethane crackers, PE, PDH, methanol
  • Engineering & construction (E&C) challenge
  • Capital spending (CAPEX) cycles
  • Global reaction and impact
