“The company will stick to the original plans for the No 3 cracker and shut it down in the middle of August,” the spokesperson said
The company plans to restart the No 1 cracker before the turnaround at its No 3 unit to prevent any shortage in feedstock for its derivative facilities, she said.
No dates have yet been fixed for the restart of the No 1 cracker, she added.
The 1.2m tonne/year No 3 cracker is currently being operated at around 85% of its capacity, the spokesperson said.
FPCC is also running its 1.03m tonne/year No 2 cracker at around the same rate, she added.
