LONDON (ICIS)--A maintenance shutdown at EuroChems complex in Nevinnomyssk, southern Russia, has gone ahead as planned, a company source said on Thursday.

The whole of Moscow-headquartered EuroChem’s site shut down on 1 April, including a 150,000 tonne/year acetic acid unit and another producing 18,000 tonnes/year of butyl acetate (butac).

Routine maintenance is expected to take four to six weeks but a specific restart date is not known.

Most contractual obligations will be fulfilled during the outage, though some volumes will be “curtailed a little”, the source added.
