Petrotahlil - Asia Contract Price (ACP)-linked paraxylene (PX) producers have submitted their offers for the April benchmark price.
Japan's JXTG Nippon and Energy, along with South Korea's SK Global Chemical and S-Oil, have submitted offers at $680/t cfr, Japan's Idemitsu Kosan made its offer at $630/t and ExxonMobil at $600/t.
Negotiations for the April ACP are due to be finalized today.
The March ACP failed to settle because of a wide bid-offer gap, with offers at $770-850/t against bids at $620-640/t.
There are six ACP-linked buyers comprising China's Yisheng and Shenghong, BP, Taiwan's Capco and OPTC and Japan's Mitsui Chemicals.
