Report summary

The June 24th announcement by the US Department of Commerce concerning a private ruling lead many to believe that a change had been made to the export policy. However, close inspection reveals that the ruling upheld the definition of what is exportable.  The ruling and actions indicate that the market is beginning to test the definitions regarding the export ban and could indicate the beginning of easing of US export restrictions, especially as it regards lease condensates.
