US nonfuel use propylene supplies drop first time in four weeks
HOUSTON, March 6, 2019 (PCW) -- US nonfuel use propylene inventories edged lower by 24,000 barrels (-0.4%) to 6.598 million barrels last week, ending a record-setting run of three consecutive weekly increases, the EIA said today. It was only the second inventory draw in the past twelve weeks, during which time inventories have added more than 2 million barrels. Propylene inventories are double what they were a year ago, and they are 3.044 million barrels (86%) above the 52-week average. Upstream, US Gulf Coast refinery utilization was up 0.5 percentage point at 89.6%, which is above the 5-year seasonal average of 87.4%. -- David Barry
