According to market sources, Ineos shut its steam cracker in Rafnes, Norway, after a fire at the compressor. The company did not make any statement regarding the issue and there is no detail about the duration of the shutdown.

A trader stated that compressor problems were generally very important issues and that the ethane feedstock cargo coming from the US could be directed elsewhere.

The cracker at Rafnes is able to produce 560,000 tons/year of ethylene.
