SINGAPORE (ICIS)--CNOOC & Shell Petrochemical Co (CSPC) shut down its 380,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Huizhou, southern China’s Guangdong province on 26 September, company sources said on Tuesday.
“The MEG unit was shut down in line with a shutdown in the upstream cracker due to mechanical problems,” a source said.
The MEG unit is expected to be kept off line for around 10 days, a second company source said.
The company shut down its 950,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at the same site on Monday.
CSPC is a 50:50 joint venture between the China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) and Shell Nanhai, a member of the Shell group.
