-US October benzene contracts settle lower, tracking weaker spot prices

US October benzene contracts settled 13 cents/gal ($39/tonne) lower month on month at $2.85/gal free on board (FOB) US Gulf.

The market had anticipated a lower settlement as spot prices traded below the September settlement for most of the past month.

US benzene contract prices typically settle on the last working day of the prior month and are heavily influenced by movements in spot pricing.

Benzene spot prices were weighed down over the past several weeks by sufficient supply and slower demand.

Refinery operating rates remained high throughout September. Margins for selective toluene disproportionation (STDP) units, which convert toluene into benzene and a paraxylene (PX)-rich stream of xylenes, have been healthy. Both trends suggest higher benzene production.

-Asia Faces a Devil’s Bargain over Us Sanctions on Iran’s Oil

Donald Trump’s re-imposition of sanctions on Tehran leaves oil importers with a stark choice: pay punishing prices on the open market, or buy cheaply from Iran and face the wrath of the United States

In just over a month, on November 5, the US government is due to re-impose sanctions on Iran’s exports of oil. As Iran’s biggest customer – buying roughly a third of its 2 million barrels a day of exports last year – China will be heavily affected by the US action. How Chinese oil buyers respond will have deep implications, not just for China itself, but for other economies across Asia and around the world.

In this feature, GPCA will elaborate the organization’s vision to make Petroleum’s Move Towards Sustainability and Circular Economy

Isn’t it amazing how an incubator can give a chance to a premature baby to become part of the family his parents have been dreaming of? Isn’t it encouraging to see how a dialysis machine can grant a grandfather with kidney failure the opportunity to meet his grandson?

If not for the people who exerted efforts to produce valuable materials out of mere petrochemicals, those miracles would have never materialized. Many discoveries have triumphed particularly in the field of medicine because of the world’s dependent on products that are consisted mainly of plastics. Without this, engineers and scientists could not possibly think of any alternative that would match the caliber of these products in the manufacturing industry.

-Wrangler adopts water-eliminating dyeing process

Wrangler has reached an agreement to manufacture a line of jeans launching in 2019 that will be dyed using new water-eliminating technology.

The VF Corp.-owned brand said it is the first brand to adopt the foam-dyeing process, which eliminates 99 percent of the water used in indigo dyeing.

“While we have been able to reduce 3 billion liters of water in product finishing during the past 10 years, we know that more needs to be done across the entire supply chain,” said Tom Waldron, Wrangler president. “Foam technology reduces water consumption and pollution further upstream, helping our fabric suppliers to dramatically minimize the impacts of making denim fabric blue.”

The foam-dyeing process was developed at Texas Tech University. Wrangler and the Walmart Foundation contributed seed money to the university to develop the technology.

-Soaking Flowback With Surfactant Improves Oil Recovery in Unconventional Reservoirs

This paper evaluates the ability of different groups of surfactants to improve oil recovery in unconventional liquid reservoirs (ULRs) by experimentally simulating the fracture treatment to represent surfactant imbibition in a ULR core fracture during a soaking flowback. The effect of wettability and interfacial tension (IFT) alteration on the process also is analyzed.

The results show that the addition of surfactants to completion fluids and the use of a soaking-flowback production scheme could improve oil recovery by wettability alteration and IFT reduction, maximizing well performance after stimulation.

-The Difficult Truth About Sustainability and Bio-Plastics

As more cities and countries enact bans on single-use plastics such as straws and bags, the world is rushing to embrace bio-plastics.

Seattle is a standout example. The city’s ban on petroleum-based plastics came into force in July, prompting local firms to seek “bio-degradable” plastics, usually created out of polylactic acid (PLA), as an alternative.

But while these seemingly natural plastics do have benefits over conventional ones, they can create complex long-term problems if improperly utilized and cause more damage than their petrochemical counterparts.
