SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesian oleochemical producer Virgoz Oils & Fats is planning to shut its 48,000 tonne/year soap noodle line at its refinery in Medan for maintenance in the second half of August, a company source said on Friday.

“We will shut the line for a month following Ramadan, when trade is expected to be quiet,” the source said without specifying further.

The company is currently running the line at above 80% of capacity to meet buyers’ short-term requirements.
