Correction to price assessment for steel slab, export, fob Black Sea, CIS

Fastmarkets has corrected its weekly price assessment for steel slab export, fob Black Sea, CIS, which was published incorrectly earlier on Monday March 14 due to an error.

A market source mistakenly gave incorrect prices to Fastmarkets and later confirmed the error. Due to the thin and abnormal nature of the Black Sea export market in the wake of the war in Ukraine, it was not possible to identify the error before it was published.

The price was originally published incorrectly as $995-1,045 per tonne. This has been corrected to $900-930 per tonne.

Fastmarkets’ price book and database have been updated to reflect this change.
