“The electricity problem which caused the power outage has been fixed but there are still some technical problems,” the source said.
Separately, a planned maintenance shutdown at the 460,000 tonne/year I-1 cracker has been postponed to the second half of February due to the unexpected plant outages this week, the source added.
