SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China's CNOOC & Shell Petrochemical Co (CSPC) has yet to run its propylene oxide/styrene monomer (PO/SM) and polyether polyols plants at full capacity after the units were briefly shut on 31 July on power outage caused by lightning, a company source said on Tuesday.
CSPC can produce 320,000 tonnes/year of PO, 700,000 tonnes/year of SM, and 200,000 tonnes/year of polyols at its petrochemical complex in Daya Bay in Guangdong province.
The power outage lasted for a few hours, the company source said. “Production loss was bare minimum and we have sufficient quantities to offer [polyols] to the market,” he added.
Other PO and polyols producers in China include Tianjin Dagu, Shanghai Gaoqiao and Jiangsu GPRO.
