ETHANE AVAILABILITY FOR PROPOSED WESTERN CANADIAN LNG FACILITIES

Ethane Availability for Proposed Western Canadian LNG Facilities

Study Released September 28, 2016

Natural Gas Report - July-Aug 2016

In the Canadian context, the main sources of petrochemical feedstock include natural gas liquids (NGLs) from processing plants and off-gas plants as a feedstock for olefins or ethylene crackers in Alberta and Ontario. Crude bitumen, crude oil, and condensates processed at refineries are another feedstock, which yield liquid petroleum gases (LPGs), as well as refinery naphtha and gas oils for steam crackers. This article looks at ethane in particular, presenting the potential availability of C2 if more natural gas is developed for LNG facilities in Western Canada. More results on NGLs feedstock can be found in the forthcoming CERI study “Competitive Analysis of the Canadian Petrochemical Sector”..... Download Full Report
