Updated to Q1 2020
As rig counts increase in response to improved drilling economics, NGL production is expected to rise accordingly. However, low refinery rates are expected to persist until at least Q2, when the summer driving season commences, which will limit production of propane and butane. If coronavirus containment efforts take longer than expected, low refinery utilisation could endure into the second half of the year.
Healthy demand is expected to persist until downstream inventories are rebuilt, but may last even longer as the global economy bounces back from the coronavirus and consumer spending accelerates. A growing outlet for ethane in particular in 2021 and beyond will be exports, which are expected to grow by at least 10% year on year. Downstream cracker start-ups will further drive demand for NGL feedstock, though not until later in the year.
