SINGAPORE, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell has declared force majeure on production of base chemical products at its Bukom plant in Singapore, effective Dec. 1, due to a technical issue, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.
The move came after a technical problem at Bukom’s ethylene cracker complex, she said.
The company was seeking “to resume normal operations and supply as soon as possible, so as to minimise the potential impact on our customers,” the spokeswoman added. (Reporting By Jacob Gronholt-Pedersen; Editing by Richard Pullin)
