Will Saudi Arabia hold its ethylene feedstock advantage post-reform?

Report summary

Just before the turn of the new year, Saudi Arabia introduced changes to the pricing mechanism  for several key raw materials for the petrochemical industry. The price of methane has risen by 50 cents per mmbtu, whilst ethane (the main feedstock for ethylene production in the Kingdom) has risen by $1 per mmbtu. The basis for pricing of other NGL feedstocks has also been changed.This insight will explore the recent reforms to feedstock pricing mechanisms in Saudi Arabia and quantify the extent of these changes within the context of Middle East and Global ethylene cost competitiveness.
