The Gold Interface

Annual global production of sulphur is about 70 million metric tons. Sulfur is a by-product of oil and gas production and refining, with this involuntary production accounting for up to 95% of traded volume.  1WEC has been a significant market participant in global Sulphur markets. We sell sulphur on an indexed or fixed price basis. Deals can be structured with terms varying from long-term annual commitments to short-term quarterly and month-to-month spot-based deals

  • Most of the sulfur produced by our partner refineries is sold by us into the petrochemicals market where it is used to make sulfuric acid.
  • Processing of high-sulfur natural gas is also a large source of sulfur supply.
