Ineos Styrolution announces Oct PS offers

According to a statement on the company’s website, Ineos Styrolution announced its PS prices for October with decreases of €80/ton ($94/ton) both for GPPS and HIPS from September. The producer applied relatively smaller decreases on its offers looking at the October styrene contracts that settled €110/ton lower at €1250/ton FOB NWE.

Meanwhile, butadiene contracts were settled at €900/ton while benzene contracts were agreed at €671/ton both on FD NWE basis, up €125/ton and €16/ton, respectively.

Ineos Styrolution declared a force majeure on its PS and ABS deliveries from Germany to Italy and Switzerland on September 15 due to the logistical challenges encountered after the railway line between Karlsruhe-Basel corridor was closed for a construction work.

According to the media reports, the disrupted railway line between Karlsruhe and Basel was re-opened on October 2 as was expected earlier in this story , after nearly two months of limited capacity on Europe’s main north-south artery. However, officials warned that it will take time before services are back to normal.

The producer was expected to lift its force majeure on PS and ABS deliveries to Italy and Switzerland by early October, once the Karlsruhe-Basel railway is re-opened.

However, a source close to the company noted, “Our force majeure is still in place and delivery delays are likely to persist until October 15-17. We are still delivering by trucks and boats. As for supply-demand, PS seems to be more balanced compared to the ABS market.”
