SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s SK Energy is running its larger fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) at a reduced rate of around 80% capacity since 25 December because of technical issues, a company source said on Wednesday.

“It will take about 10 days before we can ramp up production to 100%,” he said.

The No 2 FCC at Ulsan produces around 320,000 tonnes/year of propylene.

SK Energy also operates a No 1 FCC that has a propylene capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year at the same site. The unit was not affected, he added.
