SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--South Korea’s Yeochun NCC Co (YNCC) has settled its February butadiene (BD) contract price at $1,856/tonne (€1,336/tonne), up $268/tonne from its settlement price in January due to tight supply and strong demand, a company source said on Tuesday.

The price is on a pipeline delivered (DEL) basis. The company had settled its January BD contract at $1,588/tonne pipeline DEL.

“Spot supply is tight and this pushed up the prices,” a trader said.

The spot price is a component in the contract pricing formula used by YNCC and its customers in their monthly contract settlement.
