SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Qatar International Petroleum Marketing (Tasweeq) has sold by tender 50,000 tonnes of plant condensate and 30,000 tonnes each of full-range naphtha and Pearl GTL (gas-to-liquids) naphtha for loading in September, traders said on Friday.
The port of loading is Ras Laffan.
The company sold the cargoes at premiums of $19-22/tonne (€13-15/tonne) to Middle East quotes FOB (free on board), they added.
Premiums were higher because of demand outpacing supply in Asia, traders said.
In its last tender, Tasweeq sold 25,000-30,000 tonnes of Pearl GTL naphtha, 50,000 tonnes of plant condensate and 50,000 tonnes of full-range naphtha for August at a premium of $12-13/tonne to Middle East quotes FOB for loading from Ras Laffan.
