Updated to Q4 2020
Reduced refinery run rates and autumn maintenance turnarounds are likely to keep the naphtha market tight in Q4, however the fundamentals will primarily be driven by demand. The supply and demand balance is expected to lengthen again, as derivative maintenances and unplanned issues with ongoing cracker outages potentially meet year-end destocking. Should the run rates continue to minimise and demand for blendstock and feedstock grades remains steady, tightness in the market cannot be ruled out.
There is mixed sentiment over the outlook for Q4, as demand for gasoline blending will be dampened with the introduction of winter grades in October to allow for higher RVP gasoline blends. This will enable higher volumes of butane to be blended, displacing naphtha. Asian demand for European naphtha may be hampered by high freight costs. With winter approaching and propane gaining interest from the heating industry, demand from crackers is likely to firm.
