Ethylbenzene US Transcript
The US Gulf ethylbenzene report that we cover at ICIS is concentrated, mostly by looking at ethylene and benzene.
It’s updated whenever the ethylene contract settles and whenever the benzene contract settles.
Now that could take anything from a month to two months, even three months, so it really, depends on what happens in those feedstocks. Those feedstocks are very crucial to the ethyl benzene report that we cover.
We assess our ethylbenzene price really, thorough calculation we look at what happens in the upstream ethylene market and in the feedstock benzene market. Those two markets are very crucial to the US Gulf ethylbenzene price that we publish.
We get our information from a wide variety of sources, producers, buyers, traders. Not just in North America but globally in Europe and Asia as well and that goes onto the report, it’s reflected in the report, it also goes into the accuracy it just… getting a good on… a whole on feel for what’s going on in aromatics and olefins as well. That’s exactly why this is a good report to look at.
