Repsol: C2 production in Spanish Puertollano to cease for three months

Citing weak demand, Repsol (Madrid / Spain; www.repsol.com) on 11 March 2010 ceased ethylene production at its 250,000 t/y plant in Puertollano for an initial period of three months, a company spokesperson told PIE.

At the same time, the Spanish energy and petrochemical giant said it will close permanently its 160,000 t/y styrene, 150,000 t/y propylene and 22,000 t/y propylene glycol lines, also located in Puertollano. The three lines were idled about a year ago.
