SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi major SABIC has proposed its Asian Contract Price (ACP) for August monoethylene glycol (MEG) at $50/tonne (€35.50/tonne) lower than its July level, a company official said on Wednesday.

“Our August ACP is at $1,300/tonne CFR (cost & freight) Asia and we are expecting spot prices to fluctuate within a narrow range in the near future,” the official said.

Spot MEG prices in Asia were assessed at $1,190-1,200/tonne CFR China Main Port (CMP) on Monday’s close. This represented a fall of $48-50/tonne compared with the previous month, according to ICIS.

On 18 July, MEG majors MEGlobal and Shell nominated their August ACP at $1,300/tonne CFR Asia and $1,320/tonne CFR Asia, down by $50/tonne and $60/tonne respectively from their July levels.
