Updated to Q3 2019
The European liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) market in Q3 remained oversupplied with a greater influx of US imports, especially in July and August, contributing further to length in the market. Competitively priced naphtha provided further downside for application into gasoline blending. Market sentiments improved towards the close of the quarter due to seasonal factors.
Overall demand for European LPG was relatively sluggish in Q3, due to seasonal factors and the traditionally slow demand period.
We offer the following regional Feedstocks analysis and news coverage to keep you informed of factors and developments affecting prices in the Feedstocks marketplace.
