The plant was taken off line on 12 July because of technical issues, which may not have been fully addressed during the shutdown, said the source, who declined to reveal the exact operating rate of the facility.
Qatofin is still building up LLDPE inventories and will continue offering spot cargoes in small quantities, the source said.
Qatofin is a joint venture between French firm Total Petrochemicals (36%) and Qatar Petrochemical Co (QAPCO) (63%). Qatar Petroleum (QP) holds the remaining 1% stake in Qatofin.
