Updated to Q4 2020
Naphtha arbitrage cargo flows from northwest Europe and the Mediterranean region bound for Asia are expected to be lower in the early part of the fourth quarter, estimated at around 1.5m-1.6m tonnes. Potential deep-sea western cargoes are anticipated to be lower than the monthly average volume, typically at around 1.8m-2m tonnes.
Naphtha demand for petrochemical production from northeast Asian end-users in the downstream olefins sectors is anticipated to be steady, and is likely to be the preferred feedstock over liquefied petroleum gas ahead of winter heating season for the latter. However, shaky fuel demand for gasoline-blending purposes as global coronavirus infections mount could temper market sentiment going into the fourth quarter.
We offer the following regional Naphtha analysis and news coverage to keep you informed of factors and developments affecting prices in the Asia Naphtha marketplace.
