Conference Background:

The Asian LPG scene is undergoing dramatic change. Supply fundamentals are evolving as we see new LPG streams from US shale developments coming to Asia-Pacific. 

The rapid growth of petrochemicals production in the region is driving up propane demand as propane dehydrogenation (PDH) operators emerge across Asia, especially in China. New regulatory developments in India and Indonesia could also create an opportunity for surplus LPG to enter these markets. 

With these growing variables, the trading dynamics are becoming increasing complicated. Speakers at Argus LPG Asia 2013 focused on how these elements will affect the LPG trading space, supply/demand outlook and most importantly, future trade flows.
