SINGAPORE (ICIS)--State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) will be shutting its cracker complex at Panipat in Haryana state on 1 October for a maintenance turnaround, a source close to the company said on Monday.

"The plants will be restarted on 15 October," the source said.

The complex includes an 857,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker, a 600,000 polypropylene (PP) plant and a 650,000 tonne/year polyethylene (PE) facility.

The company has been running its PP plant at just half its capacity due to feedstock issues.
