With borders across Europe closing, supply-chain concerns continue to rise, with challenges heard across the petrochemical sector and prices plunging as new price levels for April were released.

"The market is caught between a rock and a hard place -- demand destruction as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the OPEC price war which could see crude oil prices below $20/b in the coming months," according to Rob Stier, senior manager at S&P Global Platts Analytics.

"Supply chain and logistics constraints could result in producers having to cut rates regardless of margins. We are in unchartered territory, but the risks for the next three to six months are still to the downside," he added.
