LONDON (ICIS)--Shell is restarting “a number of units” at its Pernis refinery and petrochemicals site following the outage at a power station on 29 July, a spokesperson for the Anglo-Dutch energy and chemicals major said on Tuesday.
Shell had shut down most of its production units at the site in the Netherlands over the 29-30 July weekend following the outage.
Prices for some chemicals had come under intense pressure as a result.
“We are currently restarting a number of units as part of the phased restart of the full complex,” said the Shell spokesperson.
“Complete restart will take place in a structured and controlled way. Flaring and noise will be part of re-commissioning. We will do our utmost to minimize impact for residents,” the spokesperson added.
