S&P Global Platts has discontinued its weekly US spot chlorine assessment, effective September 9, 2019, due to limited spot market activity.
This decision follows a proposal note initially published June 7, 2019.
Platts will continue to publish the US chlorine domestic contract price. Platts understands that the US chlorine market largely trades on a term basis.
The discontinuation will affect the following:
Assessment name Code
Chlorine Spot Dom FOB US Plant AANTK00
Chlorine Spot Dom FOB US Plant MAvg AANTK03
These assessments appear in Solventswire, on Platts Petrochemical Alert pages 243, 380 and 393, as well as in the Platts price database under the codes listed above.
