Shell: Force majeure declared for C2/C3 from Moerdijk

Shell Chemicals (London / UK; www.shell.com) has declared force majeure on ethylene (C2) and propylene (C3) from its Moerdijk complex in The Netherlands and put all customers on allocation. Output of the site's cracker, with capacity for 900,000 t/y of C2 and 500,000 t/y of C3, had to be reduced following technical problems on 23 February.

A Shell spokesman told PIE that repairs are expected to take around nine days.
