LONDON (ICIS)--An initial European ethylene March contract settlement has been agreed at a record €1,305/tonne ($1,764/tonne), up by €86/tonne from February on the back of firm upstream costs, a major non-integrated consumer said on Monday.

The contract, which is agreed on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis, was between the major consumer and one of its suppliers, a major merchant ethylene seller. Confirmation from the seller is still pending.
