SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL) MRPL sold by tender a 35,000-tonne naphtha cargo to Japanese trading firm Marubeni, traders said on Monday.
The cargo for loading from New Mangalore on 11-13 December was sold at a premium of $50.87/tonne (€40.19/tonne) to Middle East quotes FOB (free on board), they said.
MRPL had offered three similar-sized cargoes in that tender, with the loading dates on 11-13 December, 11-13 January and 11-13 February. However, the company did not manage to sell the two other cargoes as bids received were lower than expected.
MRPL previously sold by tender a 35,000-tonne naphtha cargo for loading at the New Mangalore port on the west coast of India on 3-5 December to Total, at a premium of $46.50/tonne to Middle East quotes FOB.
