SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Anglo Dutch monoethylene glycol (MEG) major Shell Chemicals has raised its Asian contract price (ACP) nomination for December cargoes by $60/tonne from its November offer, a company source said on Thursday.
Its December ACP was $840/tonne (€563/yonne) CFR (cost and freight) ?xml:namespace>
The higher ACP was in line with stronger spot values that have spiked by over $100/tonne since early October, according to Shell's customers.
The other two MEG majors, MEGlobal and SABIC, have not announced their December prices at the time of writing.
