China: Time To Reevaluate; COP(OUT)27; European Gas; A Long-Term Ammonia Deficit, and the value of RNG

  • China may no longer be the growth engine many have modeled;  the political landscape is changing & local surpluses are building. The wrong place to invest?
  • COP27 could look very different from COP26, with much less broad agreement and more countries fighting their own corners much harder than last year.
  • The European natural gas price collapse may be the calm before the storm, but there is a chance that panic has driven too much purchasing – Y2K event ahead?    
  • We look at whether ammonia/urea production for fertilizer can be fixed before additional demand paths for ammonia takes off and keeps the market tight.
  • We follow up on our view that renewable natural gas demand will surpass supply for the long term– bp’s acquisition of Archaea looks dilutive but smart.

Last week we discussed 26 Chemicals and related products and 135 Companies.
