08 Sept – SABIC Europe lifts FM on PE from Geleen and Gelsenkirchen
According to a letter sent to its customers, SABIC Europe lifted the force majeure on PE products from Geleen and Gelsenkirchen plants as of August 30, 2021. The force majeure was lifted after the feedstock pipeline has been successfully restored, which was damaged by the flooding of the river Maas back in late July.
According to the letter, the repair of the feedstock pipeline allowed the company to ramp up its operations, while the company is still in the process of recovering its stock position.
SABIC Europe has a total PE capacity of 1.48 million tons/year in Geleen, the Netherlands and Gelsenkirchen, Germany.
