The company’s No 1 residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC), which can produce around 375,000 tonnes/year of propylene, was shut on 25 April and was initially scheduled to resume operations at the end of June.
Separately, FPCC’s olefins conversion unit (OCU) at the same site – with a propylene nameplate capacity of 250,000 tonnes/year – was earlier slated to restart in late June after it was taken off line for scheduled maintenance on 16 May, he said.
The source did not comment on the reason for the extended plant turnarounds.
FPCC also runs a No 2 RFCC at Mailiao, which has the same propylene nameplate capacity as the No 1 unit, but it is not scheduled for maintenance this year, the source added.
