Saudi Arabia Petrochemicals Q1 2018

BMI View: Saudi Arabia is facing rising cost pressures as a result of a reduction in subsidies for feedstock and electricity prices. As a result, petrochemicals margins are set to fall in 2017. Yet, it still retains a competitive advantage over rivals due to economies of scale and the high level of integration between upstream energy sources and value chains. Investment is now focused on diversifying the product slate, assisted by increasing use of heavier liquid feedstocks. By diversifying feedstock sources with mixed feed crackers, Saudi Arabia can buffer itself against oil and gas price volatility and stabilise margins.
