S&P Global Platts


Join S&P Global Platts for a very insightful and informative webinar on the methanol markets.

Following a busy second quarter, with numerous turnarounds, the methanol markets are watching capacity expansion in the US, while questioning the impact new US sanctions will have on the development of the Iranian methanol industry.

We will look at evolving supply and demand dynamics, as new downstream markets emerge to soak up additional methanol capacities, and what impact these changes are having on the market.

On July 17th from 2 pm to 3 pm BST (London time), S&P Global Platts methanol specialists will provide a live market update that will include the following topics:


  • Changing global methanol balances

    • New production: Key developments in the US, Iran, China

    • Increased demand? MTO and maritime industry update

  • Regional focus

    • Asia: Widening supply gap and trade volumes into China/p>

    • Europe: Russian supply restrictions and impact on the European market

    • US and Latin America: Search for new export markets
