The boom in shale gas and shale liquids in the United States and the potential for shale development in other countries, especially Canada and Mexico, has completely changed the outlook for natural gas liquids supply in North America. Meanwhile, natural gas supply growth in other parts of the world such as the Persian Gulf and Asia is also contributing to greater volumes of NGLs. Finally, this growth in liquids supply has not gone unnoticed by the petrochemical industry, which continues to grow to meet rising demand in some mature and many emerging economies.
