Overview

FGE’s LPG & Ethane Service, part of our wider NGLs Service, uses detailed insight and analysis to identify market trends and key issues affecting LPG markets and to provide price and supply/demand forecasts.

The LPG and ethane trading market has become increasingly unpredictable due to various unexpected developments since 2020, e.g. the COVID-19 pandemic, Storm Uri on the US Gulf Coast in early 2021, and, more recently, the Russia- Ukraine war, to name but a few.

LPG and ethane industry participants need to understand how these changes will affect their plans both on a shortterm and a long-term basis. We answer these key questions and provide our outlook for short-, medium-, and long-term market developments. We are confident that FGE’s long history in, and knowledge of, global LPG markets, combined with our in-depth analysis of global oil and natural gas markets, give us – and our clients – unique insights into these issues.

FGE’s LPG & Ethane Service contains weekly analyses of the changing LPG landscape (via the popular publication LPG Confidential), short-term analyses of regional supply and demand structures (LPG Foresights, LPG Monthly Supply, Demand, Trade Balances, Ethane Monthly Supply, Demand, Trade Balances), and longer-term assessments of the direction of LPG supply, demand, shipping, and prices (LPG & Ethane Forecast).

In addition to these retainer reports, FGE offers bespoke commercial advisory services, ad hoc project work, workshops, seminars and presentations.
