Borealis has announced force majeure on its feedstocks and cracker supplies from its Porvoo, Finland cracker, which is expected to impact supply balance this week, reported S&P Global.
Thus, the force majeure was announced on 11 November at the company's 400,000 mt/year of ethylene and 223,000 mt/year of propylene cracker because of technical issue. The failure was outside of Borealis' scope of responsibility, a company spokesperson confirmed.
The cracker was shut down for repair works. Its restart is expected in early December.
