LONDON (ICIS)--The European January orthoxylene (OX) contract has been agreed at €875/tonne ($1,151/tonne), a rollover from the December contract price, one producer and one consumer said on Thursday.

According to the consumer, the OX market is currently balanced-to-long with very little spot activity seen in Europe.

Combined with talk of a rollover in the US OX market for January in line with feedstock price movements, the consumer added that this was also a “good solution” for Europe.

Further confirmation from other market players was pending.

The settlement was agreed on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis.
