Summary

As a result of the shale gas revolution and the increasing supply of NGLs, the US ethylene industry has invested billions of dollars to maximize ethane feedstock. Most of the current feedstock flexibility now revolves around ethane, propane & butane. Once the industry starts up the next wave of ethylene cracker projects over the next few years, ethylene feedstock flexibility will be greatly reduced and ethane could account for 70% by weight of the ethylene cracker feedstock slate.
