SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp has delayed the start up of a new residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) at its Dalin refinery by around one month to the second half of June due to construction delays, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The RFCC, which can produce around 400,000-450,000 tonnes/year of propylene, was initially slated to come on stream in the second half of May.

The same source had said earlier that the propylene output from the RFCC would be sold on the domestic market and exports would only be considered after local demand is met.
