Shell Declares Force Majeure on PO and Polyols in Singapore

PUdaily, Shanghai-Shell Singapore declared a force majeure on 7 December on its propylene oxide (PO), monopropylene glycol (MPG) and polyols after it shut its Pulau Bukom steam crack due to a technical issue, according to market sources.

The company had recently announced force majeure on its ethylene and propylene supply on Dec 1, on high purity ethylene oxide (HPEO) on 4 December.

It is that Shell has had to initiate the shutdown of its Bukom cracker complex for maintenance “to rectify accelerated external corrosion in specific areas.”

In addition, it is estimated it needs a long time to restart the plant, taking into account the time needed to replace some equipment at the plant.

Its cracker has a capacity of 960,000 mt/year of ethylene, 450,000 mt/year of propylene, 155,000 mt/year of butadiene, 340,000 mt/year of polyols and 430,000 mt/year of propylene oxide.
