SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Borouge’s polyethylene (PE) plant in Ruwais, ?xml:namespace>
“Production at the PE facility is very unstable, so the company has little export availability for February and March,” a source said.
The source did not disclose the reasons behind the production problem. Company officials were not available for comment.
Supply of high-end grades such as PE pipe has tightened in the Middle East and
Borouge doubled its production of PE to 1.2m tonnes/year in October 2010.
The company's new 800,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at Ruwais is running normally, the source added.
