SINGAPORE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>Iran’s Petrochemical Commercial Company (PCC) is planning to shut its Borzuyeh aromatic complex in early May for a month-long turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.
The Assaluyeh-based unit has a nameplate capacity of 750,000 tonnes/year of paraxylene (PX), 100,000 tonnes/year of orthoxylene (OX) and 430,000 tonnes/year of benzene and is being operating at 70% at the moment, the source added.
PCC typically exports around 10,000-15,000 tonnes of PX from the complex to purified terephthalic acid (PTA) makers in India, Indonesia and China.
In addition, the company exports OX via South Korea-based Daewoo International to phthalic anhydride (PA) makers in China.By: Bohan Loh+65 6780 4359
