External markets are under pressure and margins are being squeezed by falling prices and rising feedstock

costs. However, this will not stop the development of downstream plants, with the Al-Zour project at

the greenfield 615,000 barrels per day (b/d) Al-Zour refinery now going ahead following delays, and

with debottlenecking projects helping to expand capacity. However, the alleviation of sanctions on Iran will

pose a major threat to all regional producers and could still drive Kuwaiti petrochemicals

margins down further. There are also downside effects of a medium-term reduction in oil refinery capacity.

The slowdown in the Chinese petrochemicals market has exacerbated the problem of oversupply in the Asia

Pacific region. Moreover, the Chinese market is moving towards a situation of self-sufficiency. This is

likely to crowd out Kuwaiti exports from the market, requiring producers to seek other markets. The most

obvious alternative market is India, which ideally suits the configuration of the Olefins III project with its

higher proportion of propylene derivatives that the Indian industry needs to import.

  • Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan Petrochemicals Report 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View: Low oil prices have had a deleterious effect on Central Asia's petrochemicals potential. With ethane the main feedstock, petrochemicals production looks less attractive. The region is therefore set to remain a net importer of polymers and other derivatives. Uzbekistan began commercial operations at the new Surgil petrochemicals complex in 2016 with capacities of 400,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) tpa ethylene, 400,000tpa high density polyethylene and 100,000tpa polypropyl......
  • Romania Petrochemicals Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 80
    BMI View: Romania's petrochemicals industry is performing well in a market that is witnessing stronger growth. Increased household disposable income and the country's strategic position in the automotive sector are supporting petrochemicals consumption. As a result, there will be plenty of upside for the Romanian petrochemicals industry. Growth could be boosted further if Oltchim resumes full production following privatisation, although BMI is mindful that some loss-making units coul......

    BMI View: The delay in starting the SOCAR Polimer polypropylene and polyethylene plants from H216 to 2018 highlights the problems with project delays in Azerbaijan. SOCAR has also delayed its Oil and Gas Processing and Petrochemical Complex. The country is struggling to develop downstream industries that add value to its considerable energy resources. The manat's depreciation, a collapse in oil prices and high costs of external financing due to Azerbaijan's junk credit ra......
  • Belgium Petrochemicals Report AN 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 72
    BMI View :The Belgian economy has enjoyed a relatively stronger economic recovery than other eurozone member states, which has lifted its plastic and rubber output. However, the high degree of financial and trade integration with the eurozone mean the economy is highly exposed to a regional downturn, and the impact of Brexit and this instability will be reflected in Belgium's petrochemicals outlook. Belgium benefits from a massive, highly integrated refining and petrochemicals ......
  • Hungary Petrochemicals Report Q1 2017

Additional investments are being planned for another possible product entry. MOL also has plans to enhance the feedstock for its petrochemical plants, as well as take advantage of the growing demand for profitable products such as jet fuel, lubricants and base oils. The Hungarian petrochemicals industry has registered a downtu......

  • Nigeria Petrochemicals Report 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    BMI View: The Nigerian polymers market will be largely fulfilled by imports, with domestic capacities remaining small and operating well below capacity. Growth will be strong but from a low base as far as per capita consumption is concerned. In 2016, Nigeria had olefins production capacities of 550,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) ethylene and 125,000tpa propylene, with thermoplastic resins capacities of 240,000tpa linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) and 95,000tpa polypropylene (PP). Additional ca......
  • Saudi Arabia Petrochemicals Report Q1 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 94
    BMI View: Saudi petrochemicals earnings have been hit hard by falling product prices as they are closely tied to the price of oil. Petrochemical producers' profits are narrowing as product prices are linked to crude prices, which have remained stubbornly low. Saudi producers will be unable to compensate for the loss of this margin by increasing product prices. Instead, they will have to improve efficiency, although they are already some of the lowest-cost producers globally.......
