SHANGHAI (ICIS news)--Lanzhou Petrochemical, a subsidiary of PetroChina, has delayed the 20 June restart of one of its three 50,000 tonne/year lines at its styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant at Lanzhou, in northwestern Gansu province, a source close to the company on Wednesday.
The company restarted the plant’s two 50,000 tonne/year SBR lines last weekend as scheduled, the source said.
“We plan to restart the remaining 50,000 tonne/year line in the next couple of days,” the source said, without disclosing the reason for the delay.
Lanzhou Petrochemical shut down all of its three SBR lines, which have a total capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year, at the end of May due to maintenance work on its two upstream crackers.
The company has two naphtha crackers that have a total capacity of 800,000 tonnes/year, while its two butadiene units have a combined capacity of 135,000 tonnes/year.
