SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC) has bought around 150,000 tonnes of spot naphtha for delivery to Mailiao in the first half of March, traders said on Tuesday.
The deals for the cargoes were done at a premium of $15.00-16.00/tonne (€11.10-11.84/tonne) to Japan quotes CFR (cost & freight), they said.
The premiums increased because of tightening supply from India, a major exporter of naphtha to Asian buyers, traders said.
