ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effect that premiums on crude oil prices relative to natural gas has had on ethylene markets. It states that ethane-to-ethylene economics in North America have become profitable due to low-cost natural gas and natural gas liquid feedstocks from North American shale gas. It mentions that polyethylene production dominates ethylene demand, driven primarily by non-durable applications. Vice President Mark Eramo at IHS Chemical talks about forecasts for ethane cracking.
