Updated to Q3 2020
Higher crude oil and natural gas prices will drive increased drilling activity, which will support co-production of NGLs. Continued recovery in demand for transportation fuels will encourage higher refinery rates, which will boost propane and butane production. Growing fractionation capacity will enable downstream producers to take advantage of this increased production.
By Q2 2022, three new US crackers are expected to start. These start-ups – coupled with continued strong derivative demand – are set to lift domestic ethane demand to 2.1m bbl/day by Q4 2022, from 1.5m bbl/day in Q1 2022. Exports of ethane from the US should grow by more than 50%, to 460,000 bbl/day in Q4 2022 from 300,000 bbl/day in Q1 2021, according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA).
