Shell is likely to delay the restart of its cracker in Singapore

April 11/2011

(ICIS) -- Shell is likely to delay the restart of its 800 KTa mixed-feed cracker in Bukom, Singapore, to May because of ongoing technical issues, market sources said on Monday. We are hearing that April is not possible, said one source who declined to provide further details. Company officials were not available for comment.

Other sources said the cracker had failed to restart as scheduled on 10 April. The cracker was shut on 18 March, which prompted Shell to declare a force majeure on ethylene and monoethylene glycol (MEG) shipments.

Meanwhile, Shell has been buying ethylene to feed into its 750 KTa MEG plant in Singapore, said another market source.

The MEG plant has been running at below capacity, said the source, but did not elaborate.
