Royal Dutch Shell declares force majeure on ethylene supply from Singapore

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-09-30 12:11:00 – Singapore

Royal Dutch Shell, largest wholly owned plant, has a 500,000 barrels per day refinery and a stream cracker that produces more than 900,000 tons per year ethylene has declared force majeure on its ethylene cracker at its Bukom manufacturing site in Singapore following an outage the day before.

They had to initiate a shutdown of the ethylene cracker complex at the Pulau Bukom manufacturing site for unplanned maintenance work to repair a compressor, and recovery efforts are underway.

As a result, they have declared force majeure on our ability to supply base chemicals customers on 29 September 2016.
