“The plant is still shut this week as we are carrying out maintenance to check what the problem is,” the official said.
“We do not have any spot cargoes for March,” he added.
The plant had resumed production in late February following a two-month long outage. It had been operating at below full capacity prior to last week’s shutdown.
