SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indian major Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has ramped up its polypropylene (PP) output to full capacity after a staggered turnaround that began in early February at three of its PP lines, a source close to the company said on Friday.

The producer shut the three lines, which are located at Hazira, Jamnagar and Vadodara, for about one to two weeks and lost about 30,000 tonnes of output as a result of the brief turnaround, the source said.

RIL has a total PP nameplate capacity of 2.7m tonnes/year, with plants located in Hazira, Jamnagar, Vadodara and Nagothane.

The company is expected to conclude discussions for March exports soon and has started negotiations for April with some customers.
