BP passed its BPAP quotation to Argus Media
Platts had an original answer to the major's forced move



Familiar to East-European traders quotations on BP's propane-butane (LPG), which were earlier published by the American agency Platts as BPAP (BP Agreed Price), are now transferred to the British agency on global energy resources price information Argus Media from 1 September.
