DUBAI (ICIS)--Saudi Ethylene and Polyethylene (SEPC) will shut its 400,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Al-Jubail in Saudi Arabia from the middle of May for 15 days of maintenance, a company official said on Wednesday.
“There should be no further changes on the turnaround,” the official said on the sidelines of the second Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) plastics summit in Dubai.
SEPC is a joint venture involving National Industrialisation Co (TASNEE), which owns a 50.6% stake, Sahara Olefins with a 24.4% share and LyondellBasell, which holds the remaining 25% of the company.
The GPCA summit ends on 6 April.
