Updated to Q1 2021
Since European refineries are designed to produce higher volumes of gasoline and gasoil, length in these markets and the lack of global and US export opportunities will be a key driver in determining refinery run rates. However, supply dynamics will remain vulnerable to crude fluctuations and outflows to Asia amid slower business months and the Luna New Year.
The northwest European market saw a persistently strong post-lockdown recovery, primarily due to solid demand in global petrochemical feedstocks. Naphtha is usually in higher demand during winter months as competitive feedstock liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is pulled into the heating market. While blending requirements will remain subdued amid fresh travel restrictions to curb the spread of new variants of coronavirus during most of Q1, summer months could see a rebound in blendstock as the driving season returns.
We offer the following regional Naphtha analysis and news coverage to keep you informed of factors and developments affecting prices in the Europe Naphtha marketplace.
