Taking The Downturn Seriously: Most Are Getting There, Slowly

  • As we reach the tail end of earnings season, we see examples of feedstock advantages providing a competitive edge and global competition intensifying.
  • Companies are beginning to rethink strategy and revising cost reduction targets upwards, but we think much more will come in a more challenging 2024.

  • We look at midstream and E&P growth plans that include investing in more production and distribution of NGLs and question where it will go. More Olefins?  
  • In our hydrogen work, we look at how little investor support the sector has and at strategies for oil companies – all of which attract a hate group.  

Last week, we discussed 29 Chemicals and Related Products and 137 Companies.
