SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s LG Chem has bought a 25,000-tonne naphtha cargo for delivery in the second half of April, traders said on Friday.

The deal for the cargo was done at a premium of $23.50/tonne (€17.86/tonne) to Japan quotes CFR (cost & freight), they said.

The premiums are getting softer because of rising supply from the Middle East following the end of refinery maintenance, traders said.
