The source declined to comment on the specific reason for the more than one-month long delay.
TPPI had initially planned to restart the facility which can produce 550,000/year tonnes of paraxylene (PX) and 360,000/year tonnes of benzene in mid-January following a scheduled shutdown from 13 December.
The company source said normal export volumes of around 45,000-50,000 tonnes of PX will resume for March loadings.
TPPI has no term PX contracts for 2012 and will be exporting all production on a spot basis during the year, he said.
