Royal Dutch Shell plans restart of ethylene cracker at Pulau Bukom, Singapore

07-Oct-16

Royal Dutch Shell expects to restart its ethylene cracker at Pulau Bukom, Singapore, in the next few weeks following an unplanned shutdown last week, as per a spokeswoman in Reuters. "Our Ethylene Cracker Complex (ECC) at Pulau Bukom is currently shut down for unplanned maintenance to repair a compressor," the spokeswoman said.
Last week, as a result of the shutdown, Shell on September 29 declared force majeure on its ability to supply base chemicals to customers. The cracker, which produces more than 900 mln tpa of ethylene, is located at the same site as its 500 Mbpd refinery.
