SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi Yanbu Petrochemical (YANPET) is running its 520,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit at Yanbu, Saudi Arabia, at around full capacity after restarting it on 3-4 July, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The plant was shut in mid-May for a turnaround.

YANPET, a joint venture between Saudi energy major SABIC and US petrochemical giant ExxonMobil, operates a separate 380,000 tonne/year MEG plant at the same site in Yanbu.
