HOUSTON (ICIS)--US June methanol contracts slipped on Tuesday as Southern Chemical Corp (SCC) reduced its monthly posting to 162 cents/gal from 165 cents/gal.
Methanex rolled its May posting of 160 cents/gal for June on 24 May.
The cut, averaging a 1.5 cents/gal reduction on the monthly contract, sided with optimists who had been hoping for a decrease in the May contract price, which represented five-year highs for Methanex and SCC.
