ICIS pricing plant performance data (PPD) reports track activities at ethylene plants and crude oil refineries globally. These monthly reports* record total or nameplate capacity, operating rates as well as shutdowns and other developments at individual production facilities. The reports are available in a paper wallchart format or are downloadable from the ICIS pricing website as a CSV or excel file.

Data for the report month is collected at the end of the previous month. Therefore information published is an estimate of plant activity in the report month. This may vary from actual operations at the facility due to subsequent unscheduled shutdowns or alterations in production plans. Information is collected through direct contact with the plant operator. If that is not possible data is sourced from third parties with detailed industry knowledge.
