Report summary

This Insight will explain the integrated value chain process that Wood Mackenzie employs to generate price forecasts for NGLs and petrochemicals. In general, price forecasts for any commodity requires going through a relative value process. The price forecast is built up from the production cost plus a series of margins, cracks, spreads and relative values. Within each commodity, there may be relative values associated with grades and quality which can be thought of as horizontal relative value.
