SINGAPORE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>China’s Liaoyang Petroleum Chemical Fibre is currently running its 60,000 tonne/year solvent oil plant in Liaoning province at around 80% of capacity, a company source said on Monday.
The company restarted the plant on 19 June after completing a 26-day maintenance, according to the source.
“We’re producing around 100 tonnes/day of products and [we] mainly supply to northeast markets [in China],” the source said.
The restart of the Liaoyang unit is expected to weigh on solvent oil prices given weakness in demand, traders said.
On Monday, mainstream No 6 solvent oils are being traded at yuan (CNY) 8,500-8,700/tonne ($1,334-1,366/tonne) in southern China, market sources said.
