Impact of Saudi drone attack on downstream markets

Filed under: Uncategorized — Notch @ 11:27 am

Rubber & Plastics News has a useful article on the potential impact of the drone attack on Aramco’s facilities in Saudi Arabia on downstream markets, particularly polyolefins.

Over the weekend, a number of companies announced feedstock supply disruptions as a result of the Sept. 14 attacks, which forced Aramco to reduce crude supply by around 5.7 million barrels per day, or about 50 percent of its total production.

Key producers, including Saudi Basic Industries Corp.; Sahara International Petrochemical Co. (Sipchem); Advanced Petrochemical Co.; National Industrialisation Co. (Tasnee); Yanbu National Petrochemical Co. (Yansab); and Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Co., all disclosed “curtailment” of feedstock supply, ranging between 30 percent to 50 percent.
