SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Spot prices of Group I SN500 base oils in Iran were stable in the week ended 11 January for the first time since November amid a lack of deals done and as buyers resisted recent price hikes. Offers of Group I SN500 from one key Iranian producer were still higher this week, at $820/tonne FOB (free on board) Iran compared with the previous week when the offers were at $815/tonne FOB Iran. However, offers and discussions for SN500 from other Iranian producers were largely limited.
SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Week-long street protests in Iran have had little direct impact on trade and production of base oils so far amid signs that the unrest could be winding down. There have been no known disruptions to any of the main refineries in Iran, according to market sources. Iran is a major producer of Group I base oils and one of its main export markets is the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Iran has an installed base oils production capacity of over 1 million tonnes.
SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Middle East Group I base oils are expected to remain firm in the early months of 2018, as supply shortages persist and as producers hold prices up to factor in the impact of higher crude oil values. Group I base oils in the Middle East were on a broad uptrend through much of 2017, partly due to the trend in crude oil prices and while demand for Iran-origin material stayed healthy.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
