Strike in France hampers polyethylene deliveries

October 14/2010

(Plastemart) -- Majority of French refineries and two major oil ports have decided to carry on with a strike against government plans to overhaul pensions. These strikes have hampered the export of polyethylene, as per Platts.

An impact currently seen in the low density polyethylene market which is getting tighter now, as deliveries out of LyondellBasell"s Aubette unit have been affected because polymer transportation has been affected by the strike. The 320,000 tpa Aubette plant continues to run normally.

Meanwhile LyondellBasell"s refinery Berre L"Etang and Ineos" Lavera were reported to have extended the strike. 

ExxonMobil"s second refinery in France, Port-Jerome Gravenchon, did not join the strike and has continued operations and fuel supplies. 

Ethylene vessels are not moving appropriately out of France, resulting in delays affecting the Tarragona region.
