Fastmarkets amends specifications for weekly price assessment for steel hot-rolled coil import, cfr Saudi Arabia

After a consultation period, Fastmarkets has amended the thickness specifications for the weekly price assessment for steel hot-rolled coil import, cfr Saudi Arabia, $/tonne

Fastmarkets will be publishing the price assessment for 1.2mm thick hot-rolled coil, starting Tuesday February 22. The previous assessment included HRC of 1.5-3mm thickness.

The reason for the amendment to the specification to the price is that Saudi Arabia mostly imports HRC of 1.2mm thickness. The reason for imports being mostly 1.2mm thick is that local producers can supply thicker qualities, but 1.2mm cannot be produced locally, although the product is used widely in the country.

New specifications are as follows:

MB-STE-0113 Steel hot-rolled coil import, cfr Saudi Arabia, $/tonne

Quality: Width 1,000-3,000mm, thickness 1.2 mm

Quantity: Standard order 500-1,000 tonnes

Location: cfr Jeddah

Timing: 6-8 weeks

Unit: USD/tonne

Payment terms: Prompt payment upon delivery

Publication: Weekly. Tuesday, 2-3pm London time
