LONDON (ICIS)--INEOS’ G4 naphtha cracker based at its Grangemouth, UK site is restarting and the Swiss-headquartered producer expects it to be on planned rates by the end of this week, a company spokesman said on Tuesday.

The G4 cracker which has the capacity to produce 320,000 tonnes/year of ethylene according to ICIS data, was shut down alongside the refinery and all the other petrochemical units in mid-October in  reaction to the threat of strike action.

The issues were resolved and restart of the site commenced 25 October.

The larger KG gas cracker at the site was restarted and on-spec a week ago.
