BP suspends No 4 cracker in Gelsenkirchen

September 15/2010

LONDON (ICIS) -- A planned six to seven week maintenance turnaround is underway at BP Refining & Petrochemicalsí (BPRP) No 4 cracker at Gelsenkirchen, Germany, a company source said on Wednesday.

The cracker, which has the capacity to produce 525,000 tonnes/year of ethylene and 260,000 tonnes/year of propylene, according to ICIS data, is one of two owned and operated by BPRP at the site.

It had started to ramp down operations last week and was one of a number of other European crackers which were down for maintenance in the September-October time frame.


Russian polymers' market prospects are going to be discussed at Russian Polymers Summit on October 14, 2010 organized by ICIS and MRC. For more information please refer to Summit official web page.
