SINGAPORE (ICIS)--ExxonMobil started on Wednesday a planned maintenance at its integrated petrochemical manufacturing site in Singapore, the petrochemical giant said in a statement.
It said “several operating units” would be off line for about nine weeks.
“Shutting down the units will provide an opportunity for detailed inspection of equipment normally in continuous operation, routine maintenance and installation of facility improvement projects,” ExxonMobil said.
ExxonMobil’s Singapore integrated manufacturing site consists of the Singapore Refinery and the Singapore Chemical Plant (SCP).
The refinery has a pipestill capacity of 605,000 bbl/day and manufactures a wide range of fuels, lubricant basestocks and specialty products that caters to the Singapore and Asia-Pacific markets, it said.
The SCP comprises five integrated units, the company said.
