SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Borouge is running its 1.2m tonne/year (PE) plant in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, at a high rate after restarting it as scheduled on 7 March, a company source said on Wednesday.
The PE plant was taken off line on 14 February, in line with the turnaround at its upstream facility at the same site.
“The failure of the liner in the new sea-water basin at the [PE] plant led to a change of the maintenance scope, but the overall time frame was successfully met and safely implemented within the schedule constraints of the planned shutdown,” said the source.
Borouge is a joint venture between UAE’s stated-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (ADNOC) and Austrian chemical firm Borealis.
