The cracker was taken off line on 31 January because of a power outage. The exact restart date is still unclear, the source said.
The source added that the company is still not running its derivative 300,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) facility and a 400,000 tonne/year linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) unit at the site.
PTTGC operates three other crackers in the area, with a combined ethylene nameplate capacity of 1.38m tonnes/year. These plants were not affected by the outage.
