According to the sources from the company, LyondellBasell declared force majeure on its PP and HDPE plants in Plock, Poland due to a shortage of feedstocks propylene and ethylene.

Sources from the company say that this outage is untimely since both plants had undergone a planned maintenance on September 15 and been just restarted after more than a month.

The PP plant has a production capacity of 400,000 mt/year of polypropylene and HDPE plant has a production capacity of 320,000 mt/year of polyethylene.

According to the media reports, Basell Orlen Polyolefins, a joint venture between LyondellBasell and PKN Orlen, informed LyondellBasell that the restart of the plants is high priority but no information about the exact date of the restart was given.

LyondellBasell and Basell Orlen Polyolefins did not comment on the matter.
