Some pipelines were installed during the shutdown at the MEG plant to help connect it to the company’s ethylene oxide (EO) derivative units, which are currently under construction, the source said.
BASF-YPC is a joint venture between German chemical major BASF and Sinopec, with each company holding a 50% stake.
The shutdown will have a minimal impact on the Chinese domestic market as Sinopec has purchased spot cargoes to guarantee its contract supply, a trader close to the company said.
