Updated to Q4 2016
Market discussions centered on the upturn in the value of benchmark sulphur spot prices in China and whether the gains can be sustained. A number of market followers remained rather perplexed as to why spot prices in China move up, particularly since the global phosphates market remained so dormant. Nonetheless, Middle East producers upped their monthly prices and availability beyond contract commitments was scarce.
Another topic of discussion was who would be marketing sulphur from the Kashagan oil field in Kazakhstan and when the first tonnes would be available for the merchant market. According to one major producer, the first tonnes will be offered in April 2017. It is understood that two members of the consortium will be marketing their own share of sulphur from Kashagan. However, it was also suggested that other marketers would also be involved. Attention was slowly turning to Q1 contract prices and 2017 global commitments. Major buyers and sellers were not anticipating any significant sways during the first quarter, with the Lunar New Year holiday that starts on 28 January.
