Containment Fears for Western Canadian Propane

Containment Fears for Western Canadian Propane

Report summary

Increasing propane supply with limited demand growth has put propane at risk for storage containment issues, particularly in regional propane markets farthest from the US gulf coast. This Insight will highlight an example of containment concerns currently occurring in the Canadian propane market. Oversupply in Western Canada has pushed Edmonton propane prices well below BTU values (propane traded at 7 cents/gallon or equivalent to 77 cents/mmBTU) and currently reflect storage containment risks.
