Chinese players report limited PE supplies from Qatar

In the past few weeks, players in China have been reporting limited PE supplies from Qatar. They attributed this to a technical problem at a major supplier in the country, although the company could not be reached at the time of press for confirmation.

“The production from the Middle East was already down due to Ramadan and the following Eid holiday last month. Apart from this, supplies from a major supplier in Qatar have been lower due to a technical problem at the producer,” said a trader.

Another trader commented, “The technical issue from the Qatari supplier remains in place. As their supply remains low, their offers stand close to the high end of the overall range. Supplies have been limited in the PE market but it is counterbalanced with stagnant demand.”

The overall Middle Eastern LDPE range was reported at $1120-1190/ton CIF China, cash so far this week.
