“Same as before, we adjusted the domestic LPG price according to the established pricing mechanism to reflect the trend of import costs within the review period. Due to Japan’s earthquake and tsunami during this review period, there is an urgent demand for LPG leading to an increase in import costs. We thus increase the domestic LPG price accordingly through the mechanism,” said Ms. Anne Yu, General Manager for Shell Gas (LPG) in Hong Kong and Macau.
The current pricing mechanism has been in place since January 1999. The price is reviewed every quarter. The adjustment reflects mainly the difference between the forecast and actual import prices for the past quarter and the forecast price for the coming quarter. Prudent adjustment is made for every price review based on the latest import price figures.
Shell will continue to closely monitor the import prices, and will certainly reduce LPG prices through the pricing mechanism should import costs decrease.
