Saudi faces battle over oil market share Kemp LONDON: Fracking and a global surge in offshore exploration pose the biggest challenge to Saudi Arabia's oil policy since the 1980s.   For Saudi policymakers, the question will be how to maintain market share and export revenues amid a host of competing supplies from shale and other unconventional deposits, offshore fields in Latin America and Africa, the Arctic, and rivals within OPEC such as Iraq and Iran.   By the end of the decade, worldwide production of crude and ...
Asia Naphtha-Asia SINGAPORE: Taiwan's Formosa Petrochemical is seeking naphtha for second-half February arrival at Mailiao after it had bought about 100,000-150,000 tonnes for first-half February less than 10 days ago, traders said on Friday.   Asia's top naphtha buyer is seeking the cargoes through a tender which is due to be awarded next Tuesday.   This comes at a time of strong demand as some petrochemical makers have raised their naphtha cracker operations in view of improved plastics demand.   The tender also ...
