Overview

FGE’s LPG Foresights monthly report dissects and examines the volatile short-term market for LPG, to deliver clear, concise, and insightful views on the forward market.

The LPG trading market has become increasingly unpredictable due to various new developments. The US, now the swing supplier into Asia Pacific, faces its own domestic supply and demand constraints which impact Mont Belvieu prices. The Middle East, historically the price setter for LPG prices in Asia Pacific, also finds itself having to compete against US prices to maintain its share in the key Asian market but at the same remains constrained by the OPEC crude output cut agreement.

FGE’s LPG Foresights monthly report first breaks down the Asian demand center by country, and by sector in Asia Pacific. This dives into price-elastic demand areas like steam cracking, where we incorporate our in-house view of price spreads into our outlook. On the supply side, we look at production and demand trends for each supplier in the Middle East to determine exports. We also examine the US market in depth, utilizing data from various sources to arrive at a figure for exports and inventory. This gives us a bottom-up approach to forecast the Asian pull on US LPG and our view on prices.
