SINGAPORE (ICIS)--GS Caltex, ?xml:namespace>
The company had discovered the mechanical issue in the middle of this week but could not say the exact date when the splitter was taken off line, they said.
The 90,000 bbl/day splitter in Yeosu could be shut for up to two weeks, market sources said.
The unit splits full-range naphtha into light and heavy grades. Heavy naphtha is supplied to GS Caltex's aromatics plants in Yeosu, while light naphtha is supplied to other cracker operators such as Honam Petrochemical, LG Chem, and Yeochun NCC in the region.
