SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Lanzhou Petrochemical, a subsidiary of PetroChina, plans to restart its 150,000 tonne/year styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant on 20 June following a 20-day maintenance shutdown, sources said on Thursday.

Lanzhou shut down all of its three styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) lines with a total capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year at the end of May due to the maintenance of its two upstream crackers.

The three SBR lines located at Lanzhou city in China's north western province of Gansu were taken off line, along with its upstream butadiene (BD) units for maintenance.

Lanzhou PC can produce 800,000 tonnes/year naphtha at its two crackers, while its two butadiene units have a combined capacity of 135,000 tonnes/year.
