LONDON (ICIS news)--Lukoil has postponed planned maintenance at its 150,000 tonne/year Bourgas cracker in Bulgaria until later this year, a company source said on Friday.

The annual maintenance turnaround was originally due to get under way in April for around three weeks but was now likely to take place in the “beginning of the second half of 2008”, the source said, without disclosing the reason for the delay.

The source also said that there would be a brief five- or six-day outage in early March.

Scheduled maintenance at Lukoil’s downstream ethylene oxide (EO) and monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit was also being postponed until the same period.

More details regarding the exact timing of the shutdowns would be given later, the source said.
