ICIS Launches New Ethylene Glycol Margin Reports for Asia, Europe and the US

September 10, 2012

SINGAPORE, September 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

ICIS, a trusted provider of global petrochemical market pricing information, has
expanded its suite of margin reports by launching three new weekly reports covering the
ethylene glycol market for Asia, Europe, and the US.

Feedstock prices continue to be volatile and impact ethylene glycol production
margins. The ICIS Ethylene Glycol margin reports give industry players crucial information
on how multiple market factors are affecting business costs and cash margins.

The three new margin reports provide additional information to the existing ICIS
Ethylene Glycol price reports for Asia, Europe and the US markets.

ICIS combines its benchmark price assessments with oxygen yield model data provided by
industrial gas consultants Esprit Associates and cracker feedstock yield model data from
Linde Engineering. This gives industry players an authoritative and independent measure of
expected ethylene glycol production costs and profits. A range of business fundamentals
are also factored in. This extensive market insight allows buyers, traders and sellers to
have a more informed basis for their commercial decisions.

The Asian and European reports cover integrated production from naphtha, while the US
report covers integrated production from both ethane and light naphtha. All reports cover
standalone (or non-integrated) production from ethylene.
