The naphtha import was, however, more in October compared to 1,555,850 kl (1,063,293 tons) in September 2011. Accordingly, the value of imports in October also increased to US$ 1.237 billion from US$ 1.027 billion in the previous month.

The import price of naphtha was US$ 701.3/ton (40,459 yen/kl) in October 2010. This increased to US$ 966/ton (50,804 yen/kl) and US$ 958.7/ton (50,349 yen/kl) in September and October 2011 respectively.
