Olefins Database

Olefins Database

The Olefins Database is a subscription service that uses modern visualization software to report current and historical data about US steam cracker operations. It provides a factual, detailed basis for the planning needs of natural gas liquids and olefins market participants.

What if it was possible to access data on general feed consumption changes over time? Or compare something as specific as a producer's propylene production by unit from every February since 1994?

Our Olefins Database gives you all of this and more. It contains updated data on US operations, downtimes, feedstocks, and production, by month, detailed to individual operating units since 1988.

And because the Olefins Database is web-based, you can access it across multiple devices anywhere, at any time.

This includes data such as feedslate mix fractions, broken down by percentages of ethane, propane, butane, naphtha, and gas oil per cracker. You can also delve into olefins production for ethylene, propylene, and butadiene. And go as far as accessing feedstock and olefins prices, and ethylene margins and production cash costs.
