If Iran attacks Israel, Middle East turmoil could lift oil past $100 a barrel
Published: April 12, 2024 at 1:22 p.m. ET
By Myra P. Saefong

Oil prices could rise by $15 a barrel if all of Iran’s output is interrupted: analyst

Oil traders know the all-too-familiar drill: Heightened tensions in the Middle East have led to a rally in prices — so far to the highest intraday levels in six months. If Iran, one of the world’s largest oil producers, gets directly involved, however, a return to prices of more than $100 a barrel may soon follow.
“Nobody wants to be short heading into the weekend,” said Manish Raj, managing director at Velandera Energy Partners. “If the conflicts escalate over the weekend, short sellers will lose their shirts when they wake up on Monday.”

Geopolitics will hold the focus of markets to start the week after Iran's attack on Israel. An Israeli military spokesman said the country is prepared to do "whatever is necessary" in its defense. Tehran said it would attack with greater force if there was retaliation. Late Friday saw a flight to safety with money moving from equities to bonds and gold. Oil also gained on possibilities of production disruption in the Middle East.

PCG’s dividend is based on Dividend Policy where the payout ratio is around 50% of Group PATANCI (Profit After Tax and Non-Controlling Interests).
In deciding the dividend payment, the Board and Management takes into account the Company’s earnings, working capital and capital growth requirements as well as other factors to ensure prudent cash management.

Overcapacity, increasing competition forcing reducing margin, slow growth of market demand and etc is expected for the next few years

What do you expect Group PATANCI and dividend will be for the next few years?

Urea futures fell to around $290 per tonne, reaching an over 3-year low, as lower natural gas and ammonia prices continued to offer fertilizer producers cost-effective feedstock. Abundant global natural gas supply, spurred by a mild winter, enabled manufacturers to ramp up production, aiding farmers in replenishing their reserves. Additionally, subdued demand for ammonia lowered expenses for fertilizer producers. At the same time, India, one of the world's largest consumers, plans to stop importing urea by the end of 2025, citing concerns about soil fertility and human health. The country's imports already decreased by 21% in 2023.

Indonesia is likely to start operations of 22 petrochemicals projects from 2021 to 2025, mainly driven by strong demand for plastics and fertilizers, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

GlobalData’s latest report, ‘Petrochemicals New Build and Expansion Projects Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis report by type, region, key commodities, and key countries forecasts and analysis 2021–2025’ reveals that out of the 22 projects expected to commence operations in Indonesia, four will be methanol projects, followed by three polypropylene projects.

Bhargavi Gandham, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Indonesia, one of the largest economies in Southeast Asia, is witnessing strong demand for petrochemicals, especially for plastics and fertilizers. Indonesian government plans to minimize dependence on petrochemicals imports by promoting the domestic petrochemical sector to meet the soaring demand.”

Among the upcoming methanol projects in Indonesia, the Air products Bengalon Methanol Plant project leads with a production capacity of 2 MMtpy. The project is expected to start operations in 2025.

GlobalData notes that among the upcoming polypropylene projects, the PT Trans Pacific Petrochemical Indotama Tuban Polypropylene Plant project and Lotte Chemical Corporation Cilegon Polypropylene Plant project lead with a production capacity of 600,000 tpy each. The PT Trans Pacific Petrochemical Indotama Tuban Polypropylene Plant is expected to start operations in 2024 while Lotte Chemical Corporation Cilegon Polypropylene Plant will commence operations in 2025.

The results of the Group’s operations are primarily influenced by global economic conditions, petrochemical
products prices which have a high correlation to crude oil price, particularly for the Olefins and Derivatives segment,
utilisation rate of our production facilities and foreign exchange rate movements.

The utilisation of our production facilities is dependent on plant maintenance activities and sufficient availability of
feedstock as well as utilities supply. The Group will continue with its operational excellence programme and supplier
relationship management to sustain plant utilisation level at above industry benchmark.

The Group anticipates product prices for olefins & derivatives to stabilise on steady demand amidst sufficient supply
post regional plant turnaround activities. Fertiliser and methanol product prices will be subdued following lower
fertiliser demand amidst delayed planting season, and ample methanol supply into the region. For specialties, the
Group expects modest recovery in certain end markets, dependent on the overall macroeconomic and supply
demand dynamics.

PCHEM said profit attributable to shareholders jumped to 668 million ringgit in the first quarter, from 532 million ringgit a year earlier.

Basic earnings per share rose to 0.08 ringgit, versus 0.07 ringgit a year ago, according to a Wednesday Malaysian bourse filing.

Revenue, however, slid year over year to 7.50 billion ringgit from 7.56 billion ringgit, the petrochemicals company said.

The board did not recommend a dividend for the period.

This 56% increase in diesel prices in Malaysia, resulting from the government’s revamp of fuel subsidies, has implications for various sectors, including companies like Petrochemical Corporation of Malaysia (PCHEM). Here are some key points:

Costs and Margins: PCHEM, being a major player in the petrochemical industry, relies on diesel for transportation, logistics, and energy generation. The price hike may lead to increased operating costs for PCHEM, affecting profit margins.

Revenue Impact: If PCHEM sells products domestically, higher diesel costs could impact its customers’ purchasing power, potentially affecting demand. However, if PCHEM exports products, the impact may be less direct, as international markets have varying diesel prices.
