Updated to Q3 2021
Naphtha deep-sea cargo flows from Europe to Asia are anticipated to be curbed by reduced refinery production in the early part of Q3. Greater ease in restrictions combined with the summer season in the West is anticipated to see an increase in gasoline-blending demand, which could keep flows to Asia in check.
Asia naphtha demand for downstream petrochemical production is anticipated to increase in Q3, following the start-up of crackers in South Korea. However, demand for naphtha might be moderated should liquefied petroleum gas turn much cheaper as an alternative feedstock further in the 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.
