LONDON (CNI--Lukoil’s 150 000 tonne/year Burgas 2 ethylene cracker in Bulgaria will close for over one week in March, a company source told CNI on Thursday.
Operating rates at the cracker were also reported to have been reduced to 80% this month, but it was not clear what may have prompted such a cutback.
The company has 80 000 tonne/year of polypropylene capacity at Burgas and 85 000 tonne/year of low density polyethylene (ldPE) capacity.
