Naphtha receives strong support

28
Aug '09
Market supply and demand in Asian naphtha has balanced recently and the market continues to be stable. On the supply side, supply of naphtha arbitrage cargoes will be reduced from mid-September.

Kuwait is likely to reduce naphtha exports from the end of September, because a new domestic aromatics plant will boost output in short time and on the demand side, naphtha market is still receiving going strong support from buyers.

Naphtha cracker manufacturers in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea may purchase naphtha from spot markets; however, traders are not trading actively, due to recent decline in oil prices.

There is a slump in PTA spot markets and overall trading atmosphere is dull. In East China, seller's offers for domestic PTA lowered to 7,800 Yuan per ton, but buyers were not displaying and were looking at closing deals at about 7,750 Yuan.

Inquiries from overseas markets are scarce and offer for general cargo declined by US $10 per ton to $920-930 per ton. Buyers of PTA were sending enquiries for around $910-920 per ton, down $15 per ton, from the previous day.

Ethylene Glycol Market continued to be weak. Market conditions in East China are softening. Mainstream offers for large quantity is at about 6,100-6,200 Yuan per ton and buyers were throwing counteroffers below 6,100 Yuan per ton.
