SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC) has settled its November butadiene (BD) contract at $1,617/tonne (€1,245/tonne), down by $151/tonne compared with the previous month, a company source said on Friday.

The producer’s October BD contract price was settled at $1,768/tonne, pipeline delivered.

Spot prices of BD fell in November because of oversupply and weak demand in the market.

BD spot prices were at $1,450-1,490/tonne CFR (cost & freight) northeast (NE) Asia in the week ended 30 November, down by around $250/tonne since early November, according to ICIS data.

FPCC’s monthly BD contract price is settled on a retroactive basis.
