GUANGZHOU (ICIS news)--Daqing Petrochemical, a subsidiary of PetroChina, would shut its 600,000 tonne/year cracker at Daqing in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang in July for a scheduled turnaround, a company source said on Friday.
“The maintenance would start on 8 July and last [for] around one month,” the source said.
The cracker’s derivative units, including a 200,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant, an 80,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant and a 100,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant, would also undergo maintenance shutdowns during that period, the source added.
The company sells its polyethylene (PE) and PP products primarily in China’s domestic markets, according to the source.
