The rise in naphtha prices has enabled Qatar's ethane-fed petrochemicals industry to regain some of the competitive edge it lost in the past year. However, this is unlikely to lead to a revival of shelved or postponed petrochemicals projects. Local producers are still mindful of the negative impacts of slower Asian demand growth, increased Iranian supply over the short-term and the long-term development of shale-based ethane-fed production in the US.

In the past year, Qatar has witnessed the cancellation of two major petrochemicals projects: Al Sejeel and the Al Karaana. The main reason for the cancellations was low naphtha prices. Together, they removed from our five-year forecast 2.5mn tonnes per annum (tpa) ethylene, 170,000tpa propylene, 83,000tpa butadiene, 2.02mn tpa polyethylene (PE), 760,000tpa polypropylene (PP), 1.5mn tpa mono-ethylene glycol (MEG), 300,000tpa linear alpha olefin (LAO) and 250,000tpa oxo alcohols (OXO) capacity.
