SINGAPORE (ICIS)--BASF PETRONAS Chemicals is intending to restart its 100,000 tonne/year butanediol (BDO) line on 12 April, a company source said on Monday.

The company had shut its BDO plant, located within the integrated petrochemical complex at the Gebeng industrial zone in Kuantan, on 4 April for maintenance and equipment checks, added the source.

“The company’s shutdown will not have any impact on our BDO contract volumes,” said the source.

BASF PETRONAS Chemicals had stayed out of the BDO spot market in the last two weeks, but the company is expected to return back to the market later this week.
