Europe naphtha prices 9% lower, hit pre-financial crash levels
Europe naphtha prices have continued the downwards spiral as crude oil futures touched new lows amid limited relief from the ongoing price war rout and the coronavirus pandemic.
Prices have touched lows not seen since November 2008, before the the financial crisis-induced global recession.
European naphtha spot prices fell 9% on Monday afternoon to $238/tonne CIF (cost, insurance, freight) northwest europe (NWE), down from Friday's close of $260.50/tonne.
Naphtha was taking a hit from crude oil prices, with the international referential Brent for deliveries in May at $30.67/bbl in European afternoon trading, down $3.18/bbl from Friday's close, a decrease of 9.3%.
Following the uncertainty around the crude oil price war started by Saudi Arabia and growing concerns over the global coronavirus pandemic, naphtha's supply and demand has been disrupted, impacting trades and economies worldwide.
