Israeli petrochemicals margins grew strongly in 2015 due to lower naphtha costs, which offset sluggishoutput and falling product prices. Israel's refinery sector has capitalised on imports of oil from Kurdistan aswell as lower global oil prices, which has been fed through the production chain. Producers will be bankingon improved demand to boost growth in earnings in 2016.Naphtha costs will be crucial to defending and growing petrochemicals margins over the medium term. Thetheoretical surplus between supply and demand in the global oil market will grow over the coming years,precipitating a decline in the price of oil and a corresponding decline in naphtha feedstock costs. For Israel'srelatively small, naphtha-fed petrochemicals industry, this will be crucial to ongoing profitability.At issue are the sector's ageing plants, which are under investigation for environmental crimes, with callsfor closure due to the effects of operations on residents. The efficiency of the plants brings into questiontheir long-term competitiveness. Plans to expand the Haifa complex's storage facilities by 20%, submitted inJanuary 2016, were dealt a major blow in April 2016 when it emerged that the regional planning andbuilding committee rejected the application on environmental grounds.
