Updated to Q3 2017
European liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) prices rocketed throughout Q3, attributed to low stocks of butane and propane at the start of the quarter due to several planned turnarounds in Europe. Supply increased throughout the quarter, although at the end of September butane cargoes were said to be limited. European naphtha supply was stable through the third quarter, with plenty of supply coming in from Algeria and Russia.
LPG demand took a tumble in Q3 with high prices seen in both the butane and propane markets limiting buying interest from the petrochemical industry. However demand lifted slightly towards the end of the quarter with the heating season approaching. Meanwhile, naphtha demand rose in Q3. European naphtha demand has been high in recent times because of a spike in gasoline demand following the loss of US Gulf Coast barrels. Prices have risen to their highest level in over two years, also after a favourable price spread with alternative feedstock propane propelled a rise in domestic petrochemical demand.
