Butadiene - C4s Europe Transcript


The ICIS European butadiene (BD) report is a useful report because it is a benchmark report. This means that published numbers are widely referenced in industry contracts. We cover the contract market on a free delivered (FD) northwest European-basis (NWE).


This is a monthly market. It moved from monthly to quarterly in January 2011.


The contract is an industry-agreed price, which means that key producers and consumers exchange price ideas and negotiate a new settlement in the last week of every month.


ICIS covers the spot market, covering the inland and domestic market on a FD new-basis and the deep sea free on board (FOB) export market.


We also cover market fundamentals such as supply, production issues (planned and unplanned) and any developments on the downstream markets.
