It will also address growth in import demand with a look at the Chinese market and PDH developments.

10.25 LPG Pricing Trends
- Jamie Aldridge,
Senior analyst European LPG/Naphtha, OPIS

The increasing influence of imports for petrochemicals and propane/butane’s relationship to other products continues to provide levels of complexity.
This presentation will explore the trends for LPG pricing from a key price reporting agency
