LONDON (ICIS news)—Initial settlements for June European propylene (C3) contracts have been agreed at a rollover of €1,000/tonne ($1,234/tonne), a major integrated consumer said on Tuesday.
“With the weak condition of raw materials, I do believe that a rollover was the best compromise,” one of the counterparties commented.
The contract, settled on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis, was between the consumer and three of its suppliers.
Two of the suppliers confirmed the settlement, while the third would not confirm in line with its company policy.
