LONDON (ICIS)--Shell Chemicals has lifted its force majeure on styrene out of its site in Moerdijk in the Netherlands, a company source confirmed on Monday.
Force majeure on styrene out of the site was originally declared on 6 November, following an unforeseen technical problem.
After an additional unexpected steam leakage at the Ellba propylene oxide/styrene monomer (PO/SM) plant in Moerdijk later in November, the company maintained allocation on styrene for the rest of the month, even as repairs on the other plant were completed.
Both plants are now running, and customers were notified on 30 November that the force majeure had been lifted, a company source confirmed.
