LONDON (ICIS)--INEOS’ two crackers in Grangemouth, the UK, are both running on-spec following their unplanned shutdown mid October, a company spokesman said on Monday.

“I can confirm that the Grangemouth crackers are both back online and in on-specification,” the company spokesman said.

He added that the KG gas cracker was on-spec on 11 November and the G4 naphtha cracker was on-spec 20 November.

The crackers, which have the capacity to produce 1.02m tonnes/year of ethylene according to ICIS data, were shut down alongside the refinery and all the other petrochemical units in mid-October in  reaction to a threat of strike action. INEOS started to bring the units back online from 25 October.
