Long-term lost Russian gas is terminal for some European Chemicals

  • The IEA appears to be writing off Russian gas supplies for the long term. Their balancing equation requires even more renewables – we see more US gas.  
  • Key wind component industries are losing money in 2022, and inevitable price increases make expanded targets for future wind generation more challenging.  
  • With the right incentives – or lack of opposition – the US can fill the impending global LNG gap but diversifying away from the Permian may be wise medium term.
  • Linde and the other industrial gas companies are facing significant tailwinds from transition, and the IRA – capital discipline will still matter – good for Linde.
  • Meanwhile, the German chemical industry is in real trouble with BASF publicly discussing permanent closures, and we expect others to follow.

Last week we discussed 29 Chemicals and related products and 135 Companies.
