|Project Name||Project Description|
|Petrochemicals Master Plan Study||IHS completed a comprehensive Master Plan study for the development of the petrochemicals sector for a client in the UAE to support the Emirate’s Vision 2030. IHS carried out comprehensive product screening and selection process and provided market, technology and cost competitiveness analyses, project economics, social and economic impact assessment of the Master Plan. The master plan was translated into a business case to show the impact on the economy of the Emirate, its competitive position and overall economic attractiveness. The Master Plan shows the potential for new industry clusters to emerge in downstream industries reliant on petrochemicals as primary inputs. It also includes a socio-economic impact analysis which catalogues the social and economic impacts the region can expect.|
|Feedstocks Sourcing||A major consumer of C5 and C9 feedstocks in Europe was facing a feed-sourcing issue as cracker in Europe move to lighter feedstocks. IHS utilised the in-depth knowledge of its olefins’ experts who have day-to-day contact with major players in the olefins industry to model every cracker in EMEA, determining the volumes of co-products produced by each cracker over the next ten years. Also provided ideas for potential new sources and valuation ranges.|
|Market Study on Lactic Acid||A major global petrochemical company with interests in the production and marketing of lactic acid wished to develop a deeper understanding of the lactic acid markets, outside of its use in PLA. IHS carried out a major primary research exercise to understand the applications for lactic acid outside of its use as a polymer for making “green” bottles and the drivers for growth in the other applications. IHS was able to assess the major competing acids and how the price of lactic acid impacts its penetration of these markets.|
|CIS Petrochemical Producer, Feasibility Study||IHS undertook a major study for a CIS client who had a large amount of gas condensate feedstock which they wished to monetize. The study included a review of the best location to convert this feedstock to petrochemicals along with a range of potential configurations at each location, informed by an analysis and forecasts of markets for polymers, aromatics and synthetic rubbers, technology and competitiveness assessment and financial evaluation (cash flow modelling).|
