SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Equate Petrochemical Co has shut its 400,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Kuwait for a turnaround lasting around 10 days, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
“The plant, which shut just earlier in the week, was due to a maintenance, but contract supplies would not be affected at all given sufficient inventories” said the source.
Equate’s MEG line is integrated with an 800,000 tonne/year cracker and it also produces 600,000 tonnes/year of PE at the same site at its petrochemical base of Shuaiba.
