LONDON (ICIS)--An initial European September toluene contract has been agreed at $735/tonne (€581/tonne), down $10-15/tonne from the previous month, according to one buyer on Tuesday.

“The spot range is a bit vague at the moment, and the market is still thin but we feel this is an acceptable number,” the buyer said.

The source added: “There is currently no point in blending material into gasoline as the returns aren’t there, but the market could see a pick up from HDA units this month.”

The contract was agreed on a free on board (FOB) northwest Europe (NWE) basis.

Confirmation from other market players was pending.

($1 = €0.79)
