SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Indonesia’s Sinar Oleochemical (SOCI) plans to shut down its 80,000 tonne/year fatty acids and glycerine plant at Medan in February for scheduled maintenance, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The 16-year-old plant would be taken offline for about a month, he said, adding that the company would meet its contractual obligations during this period.

The shutdown was not expected to significantly impact the market, said traders.

The facility in Medan produces C6-20 fatty acids and USP grade glycerine.
