Due to change of bitumen price quickly i didn’t update it during last months.Bitumen price is changing day by day and bitumen refineries adjusting the deal weekly accordingly.

Apart from price and control of FOB price the main issue is shipping which is very hard to allocate space for far destination.Most of big orders all in lose status or new negotiation for the new price.So to book cargo first make sure container is available!!!

Price from December 01 2019

Due many changes on fuel oil price and because of environmental agreement in France for 2020 to use less sulfur in the fuel oil must of refineries are unable to sell the high sulfur fuel oil and price dropped. Some of refinery converting the final product to bitumen 60/70 and do not deliver fuel oil anymore so price of bitumen dropped dramatically (good for bitumen buyer) and from 300$/MT FOB price in August dropped to 220$/MT bulk FOB of BND.Bitumen 60/70 price in drum is 260$/MT now still there is chance to drop more.

Price on third week of September 2019

After attack to Saudi Arabia refinery  price of bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 jump up from 305 to 325$/MT in Jumbo bag FOB of Jebel Ali.This price will not come down even if Saudi refineries come back to service since there is still big risk of war now.

5 millions of barrel cut and there is possibility to attack again so there is pressure on oil price to come up on near future.

Price on fourth week of August 2019

After government increased feed of bitumen factories (Vacuum bottom) all bitumen factories agreed to stop buying and they put pressure to push back the price.During this increase price jumped from 305 to 370USD/MT in drum and again price cut to same rate as before.SO CURRENT PRICE IS 305 to 310$/MT FOB VALUE.

Price on second week of July 2019

price is going to increased to more that 312$/MT FOB of Jebel Ali at Dubai in UAE-.This price increased due opening Instex credit line of Europe for transfer money between Iran and EU.So exchange rate dropped and export get expensive.Price of road bitumen two weeks before decreased to 280$/MT packed in steel drum.

Price on second weeks of May 2019

Price of bitumen from BND is reached to minimum possible rate since 6 months!Today rate is 280$/MT FOB value packed in steel drum.it is interesting rate and like shock in bitumen market.A part from bitumen 60/70 other grade of bitumen also dropped like bitumen 115/15 to 390$/MT in 25Kg bag and cutback bitumen MC70 400$/MT in new steel drum and bitumen emulsion SS1 to 345$/MT in new steel drum.

Price on May 02 2019 

Today market price of bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 is 302$/MT FOB of BND packed in steel drum.There is bigger gap between Iran price and international rate and there is chance for buyers now to buy cheap bitumen and make minimum 150$/MT profit on!We didn’t see in other times such big differences on commodities.

April 2019 bitumen price,

normally price in other countries remain as March and small differences.There is big gap between Iran bitumen price and neighbours countries that should be come up soon.Also in Lybia, Venezuela and Iran all oil producer is pressure from outside and production decreased so market will feel shortage of material even in high price in couple of months. 

FOB Mersin port in Turkey bitumen price evaluation from Jan.01.2019 to Jan 07.2019

Bitumen at Mersin port in Turkey is 320$/MT packed in steel drum.It is huge drop of bitumen after 6 months and expecting to reduce more till two months later.One of the main reason is drop of Iran price due difficulty of export and store of raw material in Iranian refineries and shortage of vessel and containers to export.

Before 6 months ago half of raw material converted to fuel oil and it was good benefit for exporter but since Iran government rules asking to returned the money to Iran based on specific exchange rate this business also died and forced to bitumen to come down more and more and effected to market price in the region.

َAfter decision of IME and government regulator of price, from 22 of Nov they started to calculate the Vacuum bottom which is raw material of bitumen by other formula:

1. before was based on official rate of central bank and now is USD base on free market rate which is 20% higher!

2. adjusting VB price was monthly and they decided to control the price in short time and release the sales price of VB every two weeks.Now everybody quoting higher than expected rate to be on safe side but it is better to wait till Monday 27th of Nov. that IME will offer price then official rate will specify.

As per above reason ,the bitumen price will fix base on 350~355USD/MT FOB of BND.

price October 22 up to 22th of November 2017

price increase 6$/MT and reached to 240$/MT bulk and 292$/MT packed in 185Kg steel drum FOB of BND.

Reason of increase is cost of vacuum bottom which is 6$ increased and the same rate applied to bitumen. Other reason is competition of refineries to purchase the feed and this week(October 22-29) just 10000MT VB was offered in IME but 70000MT was demand of Bandar Abbas refineries and up to 10% they increased the rate.

—–

price October 1 up to 22 October 2017

Price of bitumen due increase of oil price increased. This increase is due shortage of VB in market and also competition of refineries to buying the raw material in very high rate.Normally price of VB has base price and then buyers competing to buy it and anybody who bid higher percentage can take more cargo.So one of the reasons is competition.The second reason is oil price which is jumped up due Independent of Kurdistan and block of oil pipe like by Turkish government and risk of shortage of crude oil based on 600000 barrel per day which is a shock in market.

Price of bitumen based on 100% in advance is 279 and 30-70TT is 284$/MT now Jey bitumen embossed cargo.Pasargad bitumen is 3$ less and same terms.Other private refineries offering 275-278$/MT FOB of Bandar Abbas.

Updated bitumen price on Jan 2.2017

Bitumen price has too much flactuation now since USD value compare rial has daily big flactuation. Today price of bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 is 280USD/MT FOB of BND based on minimum 500MT and including SGS certificate of quality and quantity.

The bitumen price is based on 185Kg drum and 150Kg drum has premium rate based on 10USD/MT.

Most of exporter selling the price based on Rial now and adjust the payment relative to Rial to be on safe side.

Updated on December 5.2016

Bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 is 254$/MT FOB of Bandar Abbas in 185Kg drum and 261$/MT packed in 150Kg drum.

other grade of penetration bitumen is 15$/MT higher than bitumen 60/70.

Since USD value compare to Rial increased it is supporting export price and there is advantage for bitumen dealer to export more.

Another issue is increase of oil price after OPEC agreement.Since they decided to decrease the production ,oil price increased and effected in price.

Update on Nov. 15,2016 unit price is 265$ per ton FOB of BND for bitumen 60/70 and 80/100 in 185 kg drum and 275 in 150 kg drum.

after ministry of oil canceled the increase of lub cut for domestic market it is effected on price and starting to come down and on first step 25$ per ton the raw material which is VB vacuum bottom dropped. Such flactimuation for price is irregular and bad experience for buyer since they can not decide to buy when and at what rate. ATDM able to supply some ready cargo now with very low rate since Indian buyer faced with Rupee problem and unable to complete the balance.

Update:Nov, 6.2016

After demonstrate near ministry of oil ,price of bitumen will come done step by step!

The main reason is local factories that can not compete with international bitumen market. So be ready for collapse of price now since FOB rate of bulk bitumen in Singapore is 220$ , Thailand is 180 and Korea is 195$ per ton. So there is not enough room for high cost to pay for Indian buyers who taking 30% of bitumen.

It is better to wait some days but don’t forget Election of USA  may drop or  increase the oil price. Today FOB price of bitumen packed in steel drum is between 280 to 310$ per ton depend on brand and payment term.
