ABSTRACT
This article states that Ineos Olefins has declared force majeure on supplies of ethylene, propylene and butadiene from its Grangemouth, Scotland site in the last week of May 2007 because of unexpected maintenance work on its 330,000 tonne/year G4 cracker. The olefins unit went into a seven-week scheduled turnaround on 14 April and is now expected to remain out of action for an additional three months, running into the second cracker maintenance season of the year.
