SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Indian Oil Corporation’s 360,000 tonne/year paraxylene (PX) plant in Panipat was running at full nameplate capacity, after a successful restart following a 10-day shutdown earlier this month, company sources said on Wednesday.?xml:namespace>
“The plant was shut for 10 days starting 6 February, for regular maintenance,” said one of the sources.
Supply to contract customers was not disrupted as there was enough inventory in the system, the source added.
The PX producer has in fact invited bids for a sell tender for 6,500 tonnes of PX,
But the bulk of IOC’s PX is for captive use by the company’s 550,000 tonne/year purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plant at the same site.
