I hope it’s been a good Thanksgiving for producers, mid-streamers, exporters, consumers, in fact anyone connected with the U.S. NGL business. I was pleased to see that I wasn’t the only one linking propane to Thanksgiving, as I came across a lovely website and a blog produced by Blue Rhino, who appear to be an “exchange of cylinder” driven retailer. Well they have published a blog called “The Beginner’s Guide to the Perfect Thanksgiving Meal”, and in the first paragraph they have mentioned the word “grill” 4 times, just to make sure I have an idea of what’s coming next.
There’s not really a similar sector anywhere in the international oil and gas industry that performs the same role as the “midstream” does in the U.S. market. I can remember my mother would irately say, when I interrupted her for some reason, “don’t stop me in midstream”, otherwise it wasn’t a word often used in the Hill household.
