SINGAPORE (ICIS)--ExxonMobil has nominated the November paraxylene (PX) Asia Contract Price (ACP) at $1,620/tonne (€1,166/tonne) CFR (cost & freight) Asia, customers of the aromatics major said on Wednesday.

Rival producers JX Nippon Oil & Energy, Idemitsu Kosan and S-Oil had earlier proposed their respective November contract prices at $1,590/tonne CFR Asia.

There has yet to be a widely accepted contract price for October.

The settlements between China’s Zhejiang Yisheng Petrochemicals, Idemitsu Kosan and S-Oil at $1,620/tonne CFR Asia was rejected by other key buyers who said the price is too high as their purified terephthalic acid (PTA) margins are poor.
