The high cost of methanol industry in China

wallpapers News 2020-06-25

On the one h, coal to methanol enterprises have good profits full of confidence.

on the other h, natural gas to methanol enterprises have high costs poor survival prospects.

It can be said that the current methanol market is really a few happy a few worried.

According to different raw materials, methanol in China can be divided into coal to methanol, natural gas to methanol coke oven gas to methanol.

"At present, many natural gas to methanol enterprises are struggling with little profit margin, while coal to methanol enterprises are relatively better off, with profits of more than 300 yuan per ton.

" Peng Yaoxing, a staff member of Nanjing Hanks Petrochemical Co., Ltd., said frankly that for production enterprises, the change of raw material price is very important.

The reason why methanol enterprises present different states is the difference of production costs.

After the financial crisis, under the background of China's macroeconomic growth slowing down, domestic coal prices fell again again.

The Bohai Rim steam coal index fell from 797 yuan / ton in early 2012 to 537 yuan / ton in mid May this year, a decrease of 32.62%. "Coke oven gas to methanol is a by-product of coking enterprises.

Even though coal prices have been depressed in recent two years, coal based coke oven gas to methanol enterprises can still maintain a certain profit in the off-season of May due to their low production costs fair production profits.

" Shanghai medium term futures methanol analyst Deng Shiheng said.

At the same time, the natural gas to methanol enterprises have a hard time.

Especially in the low season of methanol consumption, the price of methanol is sluggish, while the price of natural gas is still high, which makes the operation of methanol from natural gas worrying.

Under the resource pattern of more coal less gas in China, the supply of natural gas has always been tight, especially at the end of 2012, the proportion of natural gas to methanol dropped sharply after China banned the construction of new natural gas to methanol projects.

According to jinyindao statistics, by the end of 2013, the proportion of domestic natural gas to methanol plants decreased from 27.

8% in 2008 to 18.1%. Tight supply directly leads to high domestic natural gas prices.

According to We data, Chongqing industrial pipeline gas rose from 2.

24 yuan / m3 on August 1, 2013 to 2.

49 yuan / m3 at present, an increase of 11.

16%, which is in sharp contrast with the domestic coal price.

"Recently, it has been reported from the market that a new price mechanism has been implemented for industrial natural gas in Southwest China since July, with an increase of 0.

4 yuan / cubic meter on the existing basis.

This is undoubtedly adding to the difficulties for the natural gas to methanol enterprises.

" Methanol analysts told reporters that in general, every 0.

1 yuan / cubic meter of natural gas price increases, the cost of gas head enterprises increases by about 100 yuan / ton.

With the increasing cost, the natural gas to methanol enterprises are under heavy pressure.

Coal to methanol has become the mainstream, coupled with the competition from imported natural gas to methanol, the domestic natural gas to methanol enterprises are facing more more disadvantages, which also forces them to evaluate the situation consider new breakthroughs.

Zheng Xinran, manager of energy Chemical Department of Yingda futures, told futures daily that during her contact with methanol enterprises, many enterprises have realized that they can not only rely on changes in raw material costs product prices to meet the challenges, but should strengthen internal management, improve their own production efficiency, balance long-term planning short-term interests, maintain the competitiveness of enterprises .

It is worth noting that with the further promotion of the national development Reform Commission in strengthening the prevention control of air pollution in the energy industry, the coal industry is the first to bear the brunt, which may increase the production cost of coal to methanol enterprises to a certain extent.

"In terms of technology, the pollution of coal to methanol is higher than that of natural gas to methanol, so the investment in environmental protection will also be higher than that of natural gas to methanol, which will inevitably encourage the elimination of excess capacity, make the competition of coal to methanol more intense in the future, also narrow the profit gap with the natural gas to methanol enterprises.

" Deng Shiheng said.
