Petrotahlil - India's Reliance has nominated its October paraxylene Asia Contract Price at $650/mt CFR Asia, unchanged from its nomination for September PX ACP, a source close to the matter told Platts Sept. 28.
There are six PX ACP sellers in Asia: Japan's ENEOS Corp. and Idemitsu Kosan, South Korea's S-Oil and SK Global Chemical, ExxonMobil, and India's Reliance.
Typically, there have been seven ACP buyers: BP, Taiwan's Capco and Oriental Petrochemical (Taiwan) Corp., Japan's Mitsui Chemicals and Mitsubishi Chemical, and China's Yisheng Petrochemical and Jiangsu Shenghong Chemical Fiber Co.
