Players in Europe reported that the petrochemical market has felt little impact of the fire that broke out at ExxonMobil’s refinery in Rotterdam, Netherlands on August 21. The fire occurred at the powerformer unit of the complex while most of the facility as well as a connected chemical plant remained operational.

The complex can process about 190,000 barrels/day.

Market players noted that the fire has not had any major impact on aromatics prices in Europe so far as operations at its chemical unit are running smoothly.
