SHANGHAI (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical plans to shut down its 105,000 tonne/year monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant at the end of this month for scheduled maintenance, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.

The plant will be shut down for more than 20 days from 29 October, the source added.

“We could not confirm how the market will be impacted by the shutdown of the plant, but it is sure that the supply will be less of course,” the source added.

The company, at Maoming city in Guangdong province, southern China, also produces ethylene, styrene monomer (SM), butadiene rubber (BR) and some other petrochemical products.
