According to market sources, Spain’s Repsol has restarted its steam cracker in Tarragona, Spain after an unplanned shutdown due to a technical problem. The cracker has a production capacity of 702,000 tons/year.

However, the force majeure on ethylene supplies from the facility reportedly remains in place. The company declared a force majeure on ethylene from the site at the end of October.

In Europe, spot ethylene prices rose €15-20/ton week over week to be currently quoted at €990-995/ton on an FD NWE basis.
