SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Petrochemical Corp of Singapore (PCS) has delayed the restart of its No 1 benzene, toluene and mixed xylenes (BTX) plant due to a simultaneous delay in the restart of its 475,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker, said a company source on Tuesday.
The Jurong island-based unit would be restarted on 26 August, delayed by about three days from the original date, he added.
The unit produces about 100,000 tonnes/year of benzene, 50,000 tonnes/year of toluene and 28,000 tonnes/year of solvent grade xylene.
Aromatics producer PCS took the unit offline for a scheduled turnaround around mid-July.
