ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the petrochemical industry. It is reported that for ethylene and polyethylene (PE), 2008 will be a transition year toward the expected trough of 2009-2011. It is also reported that after experiencing a decline in net exports earlier this decade, North America has seen a resurgence in ethylene equivalent exports up to 13% of total U.S. production in 2007 and so far in 2008, due to a higher ratio of oil/natural gas prices and a weak U.S. dollar.
