Shell says its Dutch petchem plant going down, maintenance not yet confirmed

April 19/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Royal Dutch Shell said its Moerdijk petrochemical plant in the Netherlands was shutting down, but a planned maintenance turnaround at the site was not yet confirmed, said Reuters.

A spokeswoman for the oil major said Shell was “carefully optimistic” at this point about the lower olefins unit shutting down “which will hopefully lead to the turnaround at some point soon."

Workers have been on strike at the Moerdijk plant and the nearby 404,000 barrel per day Pernis oil refinery, Europe’s largest, since April 8.

A spokeswoman for the oil major said Shell was “carefully optimistic” at this point about the lower olefins unit shutting down “which will hopefully lead to the turnaround at some point soon”.

 She added the turnaround was planned to start at some point between mid April and mid May.

Traders had previously expected the turnaround to take place between April 16 and June 21.
