LONDON (ICIS)--Versalis’ cracker in Dunkirk, France is running normally following an unplanned outage, a source from the Italy-based producer said on Tuesday.

The cracker went down unexpectedly around 20 February because of an undisclosed technical problem and was restarted last week.

The cracker has the capacity to produce 380,000 tonnes/year of ethylene and 210,000 tonnes/year of propylene, according to ICIS data.
