SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Anqing Petrochemical, a Sinopec subsidiary, is planning to shut down its 5.5m tonne/year refinery at Anqing in Anhui province on 10 February for scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Friday.
The turnaround will last 45 days, the source said.
Its 100,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) plant at the same site will be taken off line on 15 February for 45 days of maintenance, said another company source.
The shutdowns will not have a significant impact on the fuel and SM markets because Sinopec can produce products from its other refineries and plants.
