High Stakes in U.S. NGLs: What could go wrong with today’s lucrative natural gas liquids markets? 

Gas processing margins recently hit all-time highs. Hundreds of miles of NGL pipelines are under constructions. Almost 90 new gas processing plants are being built. Fractionation capacity in Mont Belvieu is doubling. Petrochemical producers are gearing up to run huge incremental volumes of ethane. Are all of these opportunities rock solid? Or could unexpected risks derail the NGL markets and the investments being made to support growth in those markets?
