Global crude and Asian naphtha Webinar

After falling sharply in the latter half of 2014, crude prices have since been constrained by increased supply and muted demand growth. In line with these developments, petrochemical feedstock naphtha has also largely followed this trend. How do these two volatile markets affect you and your business, and what else should we expect in the coming months?

ICIS hosted a webinar on 16 September 2015 to give you an in-depth review of current prices and market trends for both crude and Asian naphtha markets, by exploring issues like:

  • What’s next for global oil and how will this affect Asian naphtha markets?
  • What impact have recent developments, such as arbitrage supply tightness, had on Asian naphtha?
  • How will the Iranian deal affect global oil?
  • How is the slowdown in the Chinese economy affecting both oil and naphtha markets?
  • Do crackers still prefer naphtha over liquefied petroleum gas amidst high freight rates?
