Total calls force majeure on PP, PS, PE over French strikes

October 21/2010

(ICIS) -- French petrochemicals producer Total has declared force majeure across all grades of polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) as a result of the ongoing strike action in France, a company source said on Thursday.

 

The company was forced to call force majeure on 18 October as transportation of raw materials to facilities was proving difficult. As a result, production of all polyolefins had slowed considerably.

 

Looking forward, the situation was unclear in both the PP and PE markets. The Total source said: УIt is difficult to know what is going to happen because of the strike; it could be resolved tomorrow, it could continue for the rest of the month.Ф


However, higher prices were envisaged for PS as availability looked set to be even tighter going into November.
