LONDON (ICIS news)--Shell’s cracker in Moerdijk, the Netherlands, was running at normal rates on Monday after technical issues affected output last week, a company source said.


The plant, which has a rated capacity of 900,000 tonnes/year, suffered problems over a three-day period between 12-14 April, the source added.


Customers of the Anglo-Dutch major were receiving all contracted material and there had been no need to declare force majeure, said the source.
