What is US Methanol price assessment?

Platts assesses methanol daily on an FOB US Gulf Coast (Houston – Texas City area) basis for the current month and next forward month. The assessments roll to the next forward month five calendar days prior to the end of the month.

The assessments reflect product with maximum water content of 0.1% by weight.

Additionally, S&P Global Platts publishes a weekly net contract assessment that reflects typical discounts, based on market feedback.

How we assess US Methanol price

Platts assessments are based on market information, including, but not limited to, firm bids and offers, and trades reported to the editor up to the close of business (1.30 pm Houston time).

All the information used to inform the assessment is published transparently on S&P Global Platts platforms as "heards". An assessment rationale is published explaining what the assessments are and how they have been reached.

A daily market commentary accompanies the price assessments and rationale, which highlights the most important trends that have affected the markets that day and provides insight into what the market expects over the coming weeks.

Platts US Methanol Daily Commentary

  • Limited spot liquidity talked
  • Backwardated market structure persists


US spot methanol prices held to previous-day values Aug. 12, with a slowdown in spot trading activity heard in the market.


Front-month (August) spot methanol was assessed unchanged at 73 cents/gal FOB USG, with no new bids, offers, or trades reported on the day. Second-month (September) spot methanol remained at a 1-cent/gal discount to the front-month value and was also assessed unchanged at 72 cents/gal FOB USG.

Ongoing outages at methanol production facilities in Trinidad and Venezuela have served to tighten domestic supply and add price support to spot methanol volumes in recent weeks.

The locational pricing spread between Northwest Europe and the US Gulf Coast widened 1.36 cents/gal on the week to 5.03 cents/gal Aug. 12, indicating that exports from the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp region to the US are still mostly uneconomic despite lower prices in Northwest Europe and slightly higher values in the US on the week.
