With all that is changing in the global markets in the last year, can business continue as usual? The multilateral trade environment has begun to shift to more bilateral agreements, changes with OPEC, Iran and domestic production continue to influence the oil market, and China has been making good on its promise to ramp down production. Join us as Paul Hodges of International eChem and Bill Carroll of Carroll Applied Sciences return for our semiannual look at these factors and explore what opportunities lie in this new economic landscape.

What You Will Learn

  • How focusing on sustainability and services could be the best way forward
  • How the recent expansion in ethylene production is affecting the market and what it could mean for the petrochemical industry in general
  • How the voluntary OPEC reductions, Iran sanctions and West Texas Shale are affecting the price of oil
