Kuwait Said to Sell Year’s Naphtha Supply at $27 Premium

Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Kuwait Petroleum Corp. will sell a year’s supply of full-range naphtha starting in December at a premium of $27 a metric ton, according to three people with knowledge of negotiations with Asian buyers.

The company set its premium to Middle East benchmark prices during talks in London last week, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is confidential. Light naphtha was sold at a premium of $28 a ton, one of the people said. No one answered two telephone calls today to the media relations department in Kuwait City.

The premium for full-range naphtha is 13 percent higher than the $24 a ton buyers paid for a year’s supply beginning in August 2012, the people said. Kuwait sold the grade at a premium of $18.50 a ton for the contract starting December 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
