SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--SK Energy, the South Korean major, will complete its residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) project in Ulsan by the end of March, a company spokesman said on Friday.
"The RFCC unit which was scheduled to start operation in July will be ready by the end of the month, but we will be conducting test runs before starting operations in either June or July", said the official in Korean.
