"A technical problem has forced us to declare force majeure in all our base petrochemicals. We are currently carrying out all actions to minimize the impact of this situation, hoping to restore production as soon as possible," the spokesperson said.

The company did not comment on the reason for the supply issue, when asked by S&P Global Platts. It was also unclear when the force majeure was declared and how long it would remain in place.
