The article focuses on the production and supply of phenol as of February 2007. Many players doubt whether availability will ease significantly in the second half of the year. Ertisa is late bringing its phenol line on stream in Spain, with rumors of a start-up in the next couple of months. INEOS meanwhile, has proposed its expansion in Belgium until the end of the third quarter. There are suggestions that situation in Asia could get even worse, particularly with a key regional producer expected to cut exports to China.
