SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Haldia Petrochemicals expects to achieve 100% output at its polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plants early next week after restarting them on 14 September, a source close to the company said on Friday.
The outage, in tandem with Gail India’s HDPE shutdown and impending maintenance turnaround, has tightened supply of PE in the Indian market, traders said.
The company’s complex at Haldia, in West Bengal state, produces 670,000 tonnes/year ethylene, 700,000 tonnes/year of PE and 370,000 tonnes/year of PP.
