“It was a big discussion again this month,” said the buyer involved, adding that the lack of trades in recent weeks made it difficult to judge where the market was.
The buyer added: “I guess the market is a little tighter, but I don’t see it getting any worse in February. Supply is there, but not in abundance, while demand is OK.”
The contract was agreed on a free on board (FOB) northwest Europe (NWE) basis. Confirmation from other players was pending.
