LONDON (ICIS)--PKN Orlen is expecting a third-quarter model petrochemical margin of around €619/tonne ($804/tonne), compared with €663/tonne in the same period last year, the Poland-based oil and petrochemicals group said on Friday.
The forecast margin is also a significant reduction on the €772/tonne seen in the second quarter of this year, it added.
WOOD & Company investment bank said the anticipated margin for the third quarter implied that a very strong margin would be recorded for September given the weakness in the preceding two months of the third quarter.
PKN Orlen is scheduled to report its third-quarter financial results on 25 October.
