SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Qatar International Petroleum Marketing (Tasweeq) is assessing bids in a tender to sell 50,000 tonnes of full-range naphtha for loading from Ras Laffan in early November, traders said on Monday.
The loading dates are set on 2-3 November, they added.
The tender, which closed last week and remained pending, drew bids in the premiums of $10-12/tonne (€7.40-8.90/tonne) against Middle East quotes FOB (free on board) pricing, they added.
The falling bid levels were indicative of a market falling off further, the traders said.
The deal for the supplies was done at a premium of $20/tonne to Middle East quotes FOB.
