HOUSTON (ICIS)--Iran’s Jam Petrochemical said on Tuesday its force majeure (FM) on ethylene remained in place, but the company said it planned to restart its Assaluyeh cracker on 12-14 April.
The 1.32m tonne/year unit was shut down on 24 March, the company said, citing an unforeseen failure and damage to the seawater pipeline cooling system.
The company has 300,000 tonnes/year of propylene capacity. Jam’s BD capacity is 115,000 tonnes/year and PE capacity is 600,000 tonnes/year.
