SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India's Reliance Industries plans to restart its 1.9m tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at Jamnagar in Gujarat on 19 or 20 March, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The company shut the plant in early February for maintenance, the source added.

“The plant should start producing on-spec material around one week after its restart,” he said.

The PP plant maintenance was scheduled to coincide with the shutdown of its upstream facilities at the same site, consisting of two fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) units with a combined capacity of 400,000 bbl/day, he said.

Reliance’s FCC units will be restarted at the same time, he said.
