SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korean producer Yeochun NCC (YNCC) is operating its two naphtha crackers in Yeosu at 100%, while it is waiting to restart its biggest 857,000 tonne/year No 1 cracker on Saturday evening, company sources said on Friday.

The cracker No 1 has been shut since 22 February because of a power failure, they added.

Prior to the snag, the cracker operated at full tilt, sources said.

The No 2 cracker has a nameplate capacity of 578,000 tonnes/year, while the No 3 cracker has a nameplate capacity of 465,000 tonnes/year. All the crackers are located in Yeosu.
