SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi Polyolefins is in the progress of ramping up the capacity of one of its two polypropylene (PP) lines at its Al-Jubail facility after a technical glitch disrupted operations for about a day late last week, a source close to the company said on Monday.
“There is negligible loss of supply and sales volume will not be affected,” the source said.
The two PP lines have a combined nameplate capacity of 700,000 tonnes/year.
Saudi Polyolefins is a joint venture between National Industrialisation Co (Tasnee) and LyondellBasell.
