Updated to Q2 2018
US methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) supply tightened during the second quarter as a producer in the US Gulf Coast underwent maintenance at an upstream unit for several weeks during the month of April. Total domestic production rebounded during May and June, but a brief, unexpected hiccup at another USG producer likely removed product further from the market place.
Demand for US-produced MTBE, which is chiefly exported to international markets, continued to be robust as global gasoline consumption was strong. MTBE is added to gasoline to boost octane levels. Mexico was the top destination for the oxygenate, with Chile, Venezuela and Belgium receiving product as well. MTBE was phased out in the US in favour of corn-based ethanol.
