Platts proposes to discontinue European caustic soda contract price assessment

S&P Global Platts is proposing to discontinue its European caustic soda contract price assessment, effective April 7, 2020, due to a growing disconnect between spot and contract prices.

Platts will continue to publish its European caustic soda export spot price assessment.

The proposed discontinuation would affect the following:

Code Description

AANTG00 Caustic Soda FD NWE CP Eur/mt

Platts European caustic soda assessments appear in Solventswire, on Platts Petrochemical Alert pages 243, 380 and 391, and in the Platts price database under the code listed above.

Platts invites feedback on this proposal to pl_petchems_ln@spglobal.com with copy to pricegroup@spglobal.com by January 21, 2020.
