SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s BASF PETRONAS Chemicals plans to shut its 100,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) plant at Gebeng in Kuantan for two to three weeks from mid-October for maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.
The company usually has 1,000 tonnes of spot BDO for sale each month, the source said.
As BASF PETRONAS Chemicals has stocked up on its inventory levels, it will have ample BDO supplies for both its contract and spot customers during the shutdown, the source added.
