SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s refinery operator Pertamina shut its residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) in Balongan on Wednesday due to technical problems, a source close to the company said.
The unit, which can produce 250,000 tonnes/year of propylene (C3), would remain off line for one week, the source added.
Pertamina had cancelled its tender to sell five to six propylene cargoes for December loading due to the upcoming shutdown, industry sources said.
