The US Gulf Coast MTBE market extended declines Thursday

– Offer in MOC process falls to 211 cents/gal

– Spot falls below NYMEX RBOB futures

The US Gulf Coast MTBE market extended declines Thursday as an offer in the  Market on Close assessment process continued to attract no buying interest.

RATIONALE:

S&P Global assessed spot Gulf Coast MTBE at 210.95 cents/gal Thursday, down 5.05 cents from Thursday. The assessment was below an offer in the Market on Close assessment process at 211 cents/gal FOB USG.
