SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Saudi Polyolefins Co has achieved 80-85% operating rate at its polypropylene (PP) and propylene dehydrogenation (PDH) plants at Al Jubail after restarting them at the end of last week, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The 450,000 tonne/year PP and PDH plants were shut down in December for maintenance. The PP plant secures propylene feedstock from the PDH plant.

Saudi Polyolefins is a joint venture between Tasnee (National Industrialisation Co) and LyondellBasell.
