The North American Natural Gas Liquids Markets are Chaotic
In this paper we test for deterministic chaos(i.e., nonlinear deterministic processes which look random) in seven Mont Belview, Texas hydrocarbon markets, using monthly data from 1985:1 to 1996:12 -- the markets are those of ethane, propane, normal butane, iso-butane, naphta, crude oil, and natural gas. In doing so, we use the Lyapunov exponent estimator of Nychka, Ellner, Gallant and McCaffrey (1992). We conclude that there is evidence consistent with chaotic nonlinear generation process in all five natural gas liquids markets.
