GOOOAAAAL! INEOS Scores Again – Thanks For The Validation

  • Our theme around the possible need for backward integration for all basic chemical producers as energy transition evolves was validated by INEOS this week.
  • INEOS is buying inputs for its US and European ethylene plants and natural gas for its LNG agreement with Sempra – we might see the company buy more.
  • Ethylene likely won’t be driven by cost curves based on market-priced inputs in 10 years – hydrocarbon integration economics will drive investment and success.
  • We look at more results – weak and getting weaker in Europe for traditional chemicals but strong and getting stronger when supplying energy transition.
  • We also look at recent auto data and maintain our view that this is likely to be a bad year for automakers getting worse as the year progresses.

We are 8 days away from the start of CERA week in Houston (happy to meet up with anyone attending).
