SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Oman Polypropylene (PP) is expected to restart its plant at Sohar on 10 December after an 11-day shutdown, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
The 340,000 tonne/year plant was shut down late last week "due to a technical glitch", the source said.
The plant secures its propylene feedstock supply from the adjoining Sohar Refinery Co.
Oman PP officials were not available for comment.
The PP maker is 40% owned by Oman Oil. LG International, Gulf Investment and International Petroleum Investment each hold a 20% share in Oman PP.
