LONDON (ICIS)--A second European monoethylene glycol (MEG) June contract settlement has been concluded at €925/tonne ($1,171/tonne), a decrease of €54/tonne from May, a buyer and seller confirmed on Thursday.
"I have just agreed… €925/tonne for June contract delivery," the buyer said, adding that spot prices should now drop lower than net contract.
Spot prices have fallen by over €100/tonne CIF (cost, insurance and freight) NWE (northwest Europe) to below €800/tonne since March, when the contract price was €1,070/tonne FD (free delivered) NWE.
The first agreement was made on Monday 11 June.
