Report summary

The recent decline in crude oil prices is impacting global energy markets companies and economies. About $135 billion dollars of investments are planned by the North America gas based chemical industries. Most of these investments have been justified based on North America natural gas prices staying significantly lower than crude oil prices. The recent collapse between the relative value of crude oil and natural gas is now challenging the viability of these planned investments.
