SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--US-based ExxonMobil has proposed a $50/tonne (€38.5/tonne) hike for the August paraxylene (PX) Asia Contract Price (ACP), customers of the energy major said on Wednesday.
“The nominated price is $950/tonne CFR Asia,” said a Japan-based end-user with a Taiwan-based purified terephathalic acid (PTA) maker confirming the proposed price.
The proposed price represented a $50/tonne hike from the fully settled July ACP of $900/tonne CFR Asia.
