美国可再生燃料价格上涨25%

中国石化新闻网讯 据烃加工网站2月26日消息 交易员表示,彭博社的一份报告称,特朗普政府已决定削减炼油厂对美国生物燃料混合法的豁免,此后美国可再生燃料价格上涨了25%。

今年1月下旬,美国第十巡回上诉法院表示,环境保护署必须重新考虑此前给予炼油厂的一些豁免。据报道,美国政府决定在全国范围内实施这一裁决,这可能意味着未来获得豁免的炼油厂将减少。

交易员表示,报告发布后,可再生燃料(D6)信用评级RIN-D6-US在2019年的交易价格周三为35美分,高于前一交易日的28美分。2020年可再生燃料信用评级交易价格为40美分。

根据美国可再生燃料标准,该国炼油厂必须在燃料中掺入数十亿加仑的乙醇等生物燃料,或者从那些掺入燃料的企业那里购买信贷。但是,如果环保署证明遵守这些法规会给他们带来经济困难,他们就可以免除义务。

根据法院的裁决,美国环保署越权在过去给予HollyFrontier公司的Woods Cross 和Cheyenne 炼油厂以及CVR能源公司的Wynewood炼油厂豁免,因为这些炼油厂在前一年没有获得豁免。

法院表示,RFS的措辞是这样的,2010年之后授予小型炼油厂的任何豁免都必须采取“延期”的形式。

根据环保署的数据,该机构在2015年批准了7项生物燃料豁免。这一数字在2017年上升到35个,这意味着在上一年没有获得豁免的情况下,有28个获得了豁免。

U.S. renewable fuel prices climb 25% after report on small refinery waiver program

U.S. renewable fuel prices rose 25%, traders said, after a Bloomberg report stated that the Trump administration has decided to pare exemptions for oil refineries from the nation’s biofuel blending laws.

In late January the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit said the Environmental Protection Agency must reconsider some exemptions it previously gave to oil refineries. The administration has decided to apply that ruling nationwide, which likely would mean fewer refineries receive exemptions going forward, according to the report.

Following the report, renewable fuel (D6) credits RIN-D6-US for 2019 traded at 35 cents each on Wednesday, up from 28 cents in the previous session, traders said. Credits for 2020 traded at 40 cents each.

Reuters did not independently confirm the report. EPA spokeswoman Molly Block declined to comment on the report.

The EPA has been seeking White House guidance on how the court decision affects the small refinery waiver program.

Under the U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard, the nation’s oil refineries are required to blend billions of gallons of biofuels such as ethanol into the fuel or buy credits from those that do. But the EPA can waive their obligations if they prove compliance would cause them financial distress.

According to the court’s decision, the EPA overstepped its authority to grant waivers in the past for HollyFrontier Corp’s Woods Cross and Cheyenne refineries and CVR Energy Inc’s Wynnewood refinery because the refineries had not received exemptions in the previous year.

The court said the RFS is worded in such a way that any exemption granted to a small refinery after 2010 must take the form of an “extension.”

According to EPA data, the agency granted seven biofuel waivers in 2015. That number rose to 35 in 2017 – meaning 28 waivers were given without having been granted in a previous year.
