SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Honam Petrochemical has bought 25,000 tonnes of spot naphtha supplies for delivery into Daesan in the first half of December, as one of its crackers has restarted following a regular turnaround, a company source on Thursday.
The cargo was done at parity, similar to its previous purchase of 50,000 tonnes for first-half December delivery, he added.
Honam’s 1m tonne/year naphtha cracker in Daesan is now running at 70% capacity and will reach 100% by this weekend, the source said.
The plant was taken off line for regular maintenance from 10 October to 9 November.
The cracker is operating at 100% at the moment, the source said.
