LONDON (ICIS)--The  European propylene contract price for December has been fully confirmed at €1,110/tonne ($1,500/tonne), up by €30/tonne from November,  following further buyer and seller support received on Friday.

The initial settlement was agreed between one main producer and one integrated consumer. This was then followed by a second major seller and a pure consumer.

The contract price increase was driven by the recent firmer upstream price tendency and eroded cracker margins, but the magnitude of rise was being moderated by the year-end slowdown in demand and poor derivative margins.

The contract was settled on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis .
