SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Operations at National Petrochemical Co's 150,000 tonne/year Fanavaran acetic acid unit at Bandar Imam in Iran were at 70% of capacity this week following a successful restart in the third week of May, a company official said on Monday.
The plant had been shut for one-and-a-half months since early April due to technical issues.
“We restarted the plant in the second week of May but we had to shut it down for four days before restarting again and now we are at 70% of capacity,” he said, adding that the company was not ready to commit to any spot volumes due to its unstable production.
“We will have to wait and see,” he added.
