SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Petlin plans to shut its 255,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant at Kerteh, in eastern Malaysia in the second half of the year for a two-week turnaround, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
"That’s the plan. The exact shutdown date has not been decided yet,” the source said.
Petlin, a subsidiary of Malaysian petrochemical major Petronas, is a key LDPE exporter in Asia which sold more than 70,000 tonnes to China last year, he added.Please visit the complete ICIS plants and projects database
