To maintain profitability, it is essential to direct all of the crude oil components to the optimum disposition. This practice is becoming more significant due to increasing LPG demand in some countries and the supply of lighter crudes in countries such as the US., 01 Jan 2015 00:00:00 GMTShale gas drives new opportunities for US downstreamThis shift to lighter feeds for the SC will reduce the future availability of other petrochemical feedstocks—in particular, propylene., 01 Jan 2015 00:00:00 GMT
