Total lifts styrene force majeure from Gonfreville

According to a distributor of the company, Total has lifted force majeure on styrene output from its Gonfreville site in France. The company was not reached for confirmation at the time of press.

The producer resumed production at its styrene unit in the first half of September after declaring force majeure due to a technical problem that occurred in the heat exchanger as of August 25. However, the producer extended the force majeure in the wake of an industrial action in France and transportation disruptions across Europe stemming from the closed Karlsruhe-Basel railway line. The rail line was successfully re-opened on October 2, five days earlier than previously expected.

The distributor added, “The industrial action is still in place in France and deliveries are not fully recovered. It might take time to be back to normal.”
