The article states that the availability of cheap ethane in the Middle East will be limited as governments in the region become more selective about which projects to sanction because of long-term supply fears. On the sidelines of the event, the policy to ration the cheap feedstock for crackers will allow gas to last for decades, according to Patrick Rooney, managing director of Middle East operations for consultancy Chemical Market Associates (CMAI).
