Market sources report that Shell has successfully restarted its Moerdijk cracker in the Netherlands. The cracker had been shut since November 11 due to a fire.

Sources stated that apart from MSPO-2 (styrene monomer/propylene oxide unit-2), all other production units have come back on stream. The Moerdijk site can produce 900,000 tons/year of ethylene, 450,000 tons/year of propylene, 550,000 tons/year of benzene and 450,000 tons/year of styrene.

It was not clear as of the time of press whether or not Shell had lifted a force majeure at the site.
