Share Article

Focusing on issues of new export markets with expanding supply; its impact on prices, terms and freight, 2nd LPGtrade Summit to take place on 19-20 November 2007 in Park Hyatt Dubai, UAE will present leading industry panel to share their views on key issues and challenges affecting the LPG industry to 2010 and beyond.

Middle East is expected to contribute about 40% increment to the global LPG supply, with output expected to rise by 19mn t/yr to reach 54 mn t/yr by 2012. The bulk of new supply will be a by-product of non-associated gas output, arising from Qatar, Iran and Abu Dhabi. Gas and condensate projects in Qatar and Iran are due to add 5.2 mn t/yr, while additional output from Abu Dhabi is expected to be 7.8mn t/yr.

Whilst the producers toggle with decisions about export markets, prices and eventually ROI, this rise of LPG supply is promised to shake up the global LPG industry, pricing and benchmark, trading and terms of business. This changing market dynamics give rise to new export opportunities such as petrochemicals and the competing LNG markets, as well as the US Mont Belvieu.
