ABSTRACT
The article looks at the performance of commodity petrochemical markets. Further outages hit European ethylene and propylene, with the latter reaching record highs on limited supplies. Naphtha prices in Asia rose slightly, helped by overnight crude gains. Ammonia prices are firming in Europe and Asia, so suppliers are starting to move Indonesian, Australian and Middle East product to markets outside Asia.
