The new changes need new look to the market of Petrochemical and Fertilizer and Phoenix Vision Consultant Group will have a new look in field of Olefin as new market for new opportunities. We will soon provide our studies and solution in market of olefin and its downstream in Iran.

A brief overview in the market shows the following items are needed to be closely investigated and review for the Iran petrochemical investors:

  • Low price of oil and gas will not change in near future, so the feedstock competitiveness is still to be kept by Ministry of Oil to attract the investors
  • Not only the new feedstock with reasonable price will be available in US, but also US will export Ethane, LPG, Propane and also Propylene very soon. So new markets needed to be discovered.
  • China due to Social-Political reason will not increase the price of Coal gas in new future, so the olefin section including ethylene and propylene project will go on and china will be a self-sufficient Market.
  • Naphtha price will make it the most reasonable feedstock at least in US and Europe, so we can imagine the new revamp and grass route project based on Naphtha feedstock.

We will keep you posted with the challenges related to petrochemical sector.
