SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s state-owned refiner Pertamina restarted its residual catalytic cracker (RCC) as scheduled at the end of March following some maintenance last month, a company source said on Tuesday.

“The RCC was restarted on 31 March and we have already achieved on-spec propylene production yesterday,” the source said.

The propylene facility was initially scheduled to resume operations on 22 March following a turnaround that began on 2 March but some adjustment was subsequently made to the maintenance schedule, the source had said earlier.

The RCC has a nameplate propylene capacity of 250,000-260,000 tonnes/year, but usually produces around 200,000 tonnes/year of the monomer.
