The article reports that European mono ethylene glycol (MEG) contract discussions for October 2006 have become protracted, with neither the buying nor selling side willing to cede their positions. Producers are seeking increases based on tight supply and Asian contract prices, while consumers highlighted the lower Asian spot numbers.
