SINGAPORE (ICIS)--SABIC has proposed its Asian Contract Price (ACP) for May monoethylene glycol (MEG) at $100/tonne (€69/tonne) lower than its April level, a company official said on Wednesday.
“We decided our May ACP at $1,300/tonne CFR (cost & freight) to be in line with weaker spot prices,” the official said.
Asia spot MEG prices fell to $1,125-1,130/tonne CFR China Main Port (CMP) on Wednesday, a steep fall of $100/tonne from the previous month, according to ICIS.
The other two MEG majors – MEGlobal and Shell – had earlier announced their May MEG ACP nominations at $1,250/tonne CFR Asia and $1,280/tonne CFR Asia, respectively.
($1 = €0.69)
