SINGAPORE (ICIS)--SABIC has cut its March allocations of high density and linear low density polyethylene (HDPE and LLDPE) to southeast Asian markets, a source close to the company said on Wednesday.
“The allocations have been cut by 50-60% for HDPE and 10-20% for LLDPE,” the source said.
The reduced allocations were partly caused by unplanned shutdowns in January at some of the company’s facilities in Al-Jubail because of a power outage, the source said.
SABIC also had a planned maintenance at its HDPE plant at the site early this month, he added.
The producer was not immediately available for comment.
