SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Oman Polypropylene (PP) is running its 340,000 tonne/year plant at high operating rates on Monday despite the protestors blocking the roads that lead to the plant site, a company source said.

The plant is located at the Sohar industrial estate. The area, which also houses a refinery, was reported to be surrounded by protestors seeking political reforms in Oman.

“The PP plant is running fine, [there is] no impact due to the protests, as of now. But, if the unrest persists, plant operating rates maybe altered later,” the company source said.
