India's MRPL naphtha sales premium falls to more than 1-year low

SINGAPORE,  (Reuters) - India’s Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd naphtha sales premium has fallen to a more than one-year low as high supplies weighed, three traders who track the deals closely said.

MRPL sold 35,000 tonnes for Oct. 7-9 loading from New Mangalore to Socar at around $10 a tonne above Middle East quotes on a free-on-board (FOB) basis.

That was down from an average $15 a tonne premium it had fetched for two cargoes sold for September loading. It was also the lowest premium MRPL has fetched since it sold cargoes for September 2017 loading.
