NGL Market Monitor


Platts' daily NGL Market Monitor™ provides an update of industry highlights, prices, spreads and estimated petrochemical margins for the five major NGLs - ethane, propane, normal butane, isobutane and natural gasoline. The report include geographical price spreads between Mont Belvieu, TX, and Conway, KS. In addition, it include pricing ratios of key NGLs to other energy commodities such as crude oil, natural gas and motor gasoline (RBOB), including frac spreads (the representative spread between natural gas and NGLs produced in natural gas processing plants).

One of the most important markets for NGLs in the U.S. is the petrochemical industry. The daily NGL Market Monitor highlights the relative feedstock economics for each NGL used in a representative Gulf Coast olefin cracker, and contrasts NGL feedstocks with naphthas and gasoils. 

The weekly NGL Market Monitor includes an analysis of NGL production, demand and storage inventories. It also includes an assessment of long-term trends in natural gas processing, petrochemical feedstock preferences and other NGL market factors.
