SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Sinopec subsidiary Zhenhai Refining & Chemical Co (ZRCC) is likely to keep its 1m tonne/year cracker in Ningbo, China, off line until around mid-June while waiting for the import of some parts following an outage late last month, a company source said on Friday.
Compressor problems had forced the producer to shut the cracker on 28 April - days after it was started up - and production at derivative units was also halted due to a lack of feedstock, they said.
