SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indian major Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) plans to cut the monthly operating rate at its 900,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at Jamnagar by 10% in the first quarter of next year, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

Production at the plant will be cut because maintenance work at the upstream fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) will limit the propylene feedstock supply, the source said.

“[The] total loss in PP output is estimated at 20,000-25,000 tonnes for the first quarter,” he added.

RIL officials were not immediately available for comment.
