SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Chandra Asri has yet to restart its 600,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in Cilegon, West Java, after the unit was shut by a power outage late last week, a company source said on Monday.

The company was initially targeting to resume operations at the facility on 21-22 August.

The cracker, along with a derivative 225,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing facility at the same site, was taken off line on 18 August.

The PE unit has also remained shut, the source said, adding that it is not clear when the facilities can resume production.
