Part of the OPIS Fuel Focus Webinar Series:
Discover the impact of Russian sanctions on propane supply
Discussing the winter outlook for the North American propane market generally revolves around the weather, which no doubt remains a critical conversation. But the global stage is pushing ever further into the domestic market, impacting everyone from major global trading firms to mom-and-pop operations, and the war in Ukraine is behind a lot of today’s critical market developments.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- The shift in global trade flows in the wake Russian sanctions
- Disposition and position of propane stocks
- Demand centers and drivers that will impact supply and pricing
Additionally, we have exclusive insights from a large wholesaler and retailer who is working on the ground in the Northeast, discussing both winter strategies as well as Energy Transition and the implications for the propane industry.
