Petrochemistry: Rocky Road to Advanced Processing

Petrochemistry: Rocky Road to Advanced Processing

For years now we have heard the mantra that it is wrong to export crude oil and unprocessed natural gas. That they, in fact, ought to be processed and that finished products ought to be sold. This task, however, is not that trivial. The market for petrochemistry is a separate world and one has to understand if there is a place for our products there. The question is not only if there is enough production capacity; the trouble is there might not be unoccupied market niches.

The new NESF report provides an understanding of what the structure of this industry is like today; exactly what products are in demand; what will be in demand in the near future; and whether Russia’s strategy is correct.

In the report you will find answers to the following questions:

  • The structure of the global market for petrochemistry

    • Key primary products and demand structure: propylene, ethylene, chlorine, p-Xylene, and others
    • Basic supply chains
    • Key players and users
  • The most promising segments of natural gas-based petrochemistry, including methanol and olefins

    • Supply chains and creation of value
    • Supply and demand
  • The market for industrial gases:

    • Key producers
    • How capacious and interesting is it?
  • Helium market:

    • Are the expectations correct?
    • As Russian projects in the East are discussed, the subject of helium is raised very often. The idea of helium export accompanies the project to supply gas to China and to develop the Kovyktinskoye field. But is there a place for Russian helium in the market?
  • Forecast: what does Russia intend to produce and is the target well-chosen?

    • An assessment of the adequacy of the largest petrochemical projects
    • The influence of low prices on their cost-effectiveness
    • Will we fit in the market?
    • Will export to China live up to expectations?

Green Agenda in Russia during Bitter Conflict with West
After February 2022 the agenda was radically rewritten. Western companies began leaving Russia en masse, economic relations with the West were drastically reduced, and the Russian economy began to be pushed violently from the global economic space, hemmed in by sweeping sanctions. All that was, to put it mildly, not the best background for talking about ESG. Especially because tasks of survival and stability under unprecedented pressure became the priority in the economy. In late 2022, however, attempts to reanimate the ESG agenda already became obvious. The message is put across insistently that it is important to Russia regardless of the foreign policy situation. While earlier the “green pivot” was seen as an opportunity to attract Western investors and their technological solutions to Russia, now Keynesian reliance on domestic manufacture is discussed.
