Updated to Q2 2018
Availability of feedstocks gasoil, fuel oil and vacuum gas oil were mostly stable for Europe in the second quarter of 2018. There are no major supply disruptions noted in the region at present.
Demand for European feedstocks fuel oil, gasoil and vacuum gas oil has been mixed this quarter. Fuel oil export demand was lower, which weighed down the market. In a similar vein, gasoil demand was consistently described as underwhelming. Demand for European vacuum gas oil from the US was significantly lowered at the beginning of the quarter due to an FCC outage across the Atlantic but this later rebounded somewhat.
US ethane and propane supply increased during the second quarter, as production of raw-mix natural gas liquids (NGL) increased and an NGL fractionator started up in Mont Belvieu, Texas. Drilling for crude and liquids continues to be strong in key producing areas, such as the Permian Basin, leading to robust production of NGL.
Ethane consumption in the US Gulf Coast region rose on the startup of a newly built, world-scale ethane-consuming cracker in the region. Ethane is primarily used to produce ethylene, which is then used by steam crackers to produce a range of downstream chemicals. Propane demand as a heating and drying agent fell on warming weather, but international demand was heightened by strong export interest, as US propane prices are advantaged versus other regions.
