ARGUS Global Steam Cracker Economics

Argus Global Steam Cracker Economics is a global monthly report and associated dataset. The service outlines cost and margin advantages of various feedstocks being cracked into ethylene by region, including a three-month forecast.

The availability of low-cost chemical feedstock in the US and the increase of steam cracker feed slate flexibility in Europe and elsewhere has resulted in a more globalised marketplace. The result is a more complex supply chain, with the need for important decisions to be made at each point. Argus offers a comprehensive global view in a single service – Argus Global Steam Cracker Economics.
