LyondellBasell ends LLDPE force majeure
HOUSTON, October 11, 2016 (PCW) -- LyondellBasell (LBI) notified PE customers today that its force majeure event for LLDPE has ended.
The company declared force majeure at the La Porte, TX and Morris, IL sites on May 17, 2016, citing unexpected mechanical difficulties.
The Morris site, which produces LDPE (540 million lbs/yr) and LLDPE (650 million lbs/yr), recently completed an extensive 2-3 month turnaround and restarted over the weekend of October 1-2, setting the stage for the force majeure to be lifted. -- David Barry
