In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Nexant Analyzes Impact of Future Olefins Development on the C4 Carbon Business

Nexant, Inc. today announced the release of a special report analyzing the strategic impact of structural changes in feedstock usage on the C4-based chemical business and butadiene markets. This new Nexant report—Developing Fortunes of the C4 Value Chain—examines the effect of increases in lighter feedstock cracking in the Middle East and considers future implications associated with shale gas production in North America and coal-to-olefins (CTO) in China.

“Future production of global ethylene will likely rely less on naphtha cracking as alternative feedstocks become increasingly abundant and competitive within the sector,” said Lee Fagg, Nexant Principal (Asia). “However, this evolving trend will result in a further tightness in the supply of mixed C4 and butadiene—essential materials used in the production of synthetic rubbers and engineering plastics.”

A severe tightness in butadiene is evident today and reflected in record high pricing and increased pricing volatility. The C4 sector is now faced with a number of challenges and opportunities. To develop successful strategies for this market, industry players will need to address the following key issues:

  • What are the expected future supply trends in the ethylene sector in terms of feedstock options, operating rates, and plant locations?
  • How will U.S. shale gas production and China’s CTO impact global butadiene markets?
  • What are the major development trends in downstream C4 processing and end user markets?
  • Are new investments in on-purpose butadiene production a viable solution and will they result in a new pricing paradigm for the sector?

In addressing these issues, the report builds on Nexant’s technical expertise and extensive knowledge in the area of commercial olefins, petrochemical market dynamics, and regional ethylene production competitiveness.

Developing Fortunes of the C4 Value Chain is available immediately. For more information on this and other Nexant reports, please visit: http://www.chemsystems.com or contact Lee Fagg at lfagg@nexant.com.
