According to market sources, the Czech Republic’s Unipetrol may be unable to restart its petrochemical complex it Litvinov for several months. The company shut the facility and declared a force majeure on output from all of its petrochemical units at its Chempark Zaluzi site in Litvoniv following an explosion and fire stemming from a propylene leakage in mid- August.

The cracker at the site has a production capacity of 544,000 tons/year of ethylene while the other units are able to produce 320,000 tons/year of HDPE and 290,000 tons/year of PP.
