CEH: Petrochemical Feedstocks

Regular price $12,700.00 Sale


Oct 2021. The petrochemical industry covers a wide spectrum of chemicals that can be produced from several different carbon sources (crude oil, natural gas, coal, and biomass). The petrochemical industry typically produces a range of small-sized molecules by subjecting a selected feedstock to a set of chemical reactions. The produced molecules are part of the organic chemistry spectrum as they contain carbon atoms; the sole exception is ammonia, which is produced from natural gas but does not contain any carbon. The focus of this report is on the major feedstocks for petrochemicals, including natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), naphtha/gas oil, and coal. Biomass is excluded as it remains extremely limited for the production of petrochemicals. The choice of feedstock(s) used by a petrochemical unit is a key determinant for the overall economics of production and is therefore, critical; raw material cost is a major component in the overall cost of production of petrochemical producers. Petrochemical feedstock supply and pricing are heavily influenced by fluctuations in world energy markets.
