SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Kuwait's Petrochemical Industries Co (PIC) will shut its Shuaiba-based polypropylene (PP) facility for scheduled maintenance at the end of 2013 or in early 2014, a company source said on Tuesday.
The 150,000 tonne/year PP facility is currently running at full tilt, the source said on the sidelines ahead of the sixth GPCA (Gulf Petrochemicals & Chemicals Association) forum being held in Dubai.
“We have regular maintenance every three years,” he said.
PIC, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corp (KPC), produces PP grades of raffia, fibre and BOPP film.
