SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Reliance Industries may cut operating rates at its 1.9m tonne/year polypropylene (PP) facility at Jamnagar, Gujarat state in November as a result of reduced on-site propylene supply, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
"Propylene feedstock supply will be reduced because of lower throughput at its upstream fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units," the source said.
The source didn’t know how much production would be cut at the PP and FCC units but that the lower operating rates would be maintained for four to five days.
Reliance operates two FCCs at Jamnagar, each with a 200,000 bbl/day capacity.
