According to market sources, the TPC Group has announced its January butadiene contract to the US. The producer’s new contract stands at 25 cents/lb ($551/ton), down 2 cents/lb ($44/ton) from December.

Meanwhile, LyondellBasell and Shell Chemicals nominated their January butadiene contracts at 30 cents/lb ($661/ton), down 1 cent/lb ($22/ton) from December while ExxonMobil announced its January contract with a decrease of 1 cent/lb ($22/ton) from the previous month at 35 cents/lb ($771/ton).

Market expectations are calling for decreases of at least 1 cent/lb ($22/ton) for January butadiene contracts due to weak demand and lower spot prices.

The December butadiene contracts settled in the US with a split settlement of 27-36 cents/lb ($595-793/ton), down 3-4 cents/lb ($66-88/ton) from November.
