Updated to Q3 2014
European monopropylene glycol (MPG) prices soared to near record levels in the third quarter after an explosion at Shell’s upstream propylene oxide/styrene monomer facility in Moerdijk, Netherlands, created a severe shortage of glycols.
After the explosion, MPG prices rose rapidly as the increasingly scarce propylene oxide molecule was diverted into the larger and more profitable polyols market. Buyers have lamented the increased numbers, noting the downstream markets were finding it difficult to cope with a significantly firmer market as the hikes were purely supply driven.
Initial de-icing demand began in early September but volumes ordered were not significant. Average prices were steady throughout most of September but saw a minor decline late in the month as demand dipped and production rates remained steady. Despite the minor decline in average prices, prices were assessed steady as figures remained within the range, albeit closer to the bottom end.
