SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Rabigh Refining and Petrochemical Co (Petro Rabigh) plans to move its proposed maintenance turnaround at its petrochemical complex in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia, to April-May 2011 amid low inventories, a source close to the company said on Friday.
The month-long turnaround of the Petro Rabigh complex was originally scheduled to be conducted in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Officials from Petro Rabigh were not immediately available for comment.
The petrochemical complex houses a 1.3m tonne/year ethane cracker; a 300,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) line; a 600,000 tonne/year linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) line; a 700,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant; a 900,000 tonne/year propylene (C3) facility; and a 700,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant.
