Late with the end of the small holiday, the market price did not stop, but continue to rise, the rise is more obvious after the festival. Related products propane strong upward to bring good market is one of them. Downstream centralized replenishment after the festival, the market is relatively stable, manufacturers ship smoothly, basically no pressure inventory. Then there is the supply side. In April, the civil gas market entered the stage of centralized maintenance. Refineries have been overhauled one after another. With the decrease of market supply, the market has also been boosted to a certain extent. Finally, there is the international crude oil market. In April, the international crude oil fluctuated frequently and with a large range, but the overall rise also brought some support to the civil gas. Under multiple positive factors, the market price of Shandong civil gas has been rising one after another.

(Quotation unit: RMB/ton)

In the future market, the current civil gas market price has risen to a relatively high level. Taking Shandong market as an example, the mainstream price of the market has risen to about 4200-4350 yuan / ton. With the price rising, the downstream resistance increases, and more exit and wait-see is the main, and the market transaction atmosphere has been weakened compared with the previous period. International crude oil shocks mainly to the market to bring limited positive. Another negative factor is the expected weakening of demand as temperatures rise. But the current manufacturer inventory is at a controllable level, it is expected that the price of Shandong civil gas market in the short term is strong, and there is not much room for long-term growth.
