FPCC is in the process of restarting the 84,000 bbl/day RFCC No 1, which was shut down for scheduled maintenance in late April, the source said.
FPCC’s olefins conversion unit (OCU) at the same site that has a nameplate propylene capacity of 250,000 tonnes/year is expected to restart in mid-July, the source said.
The OCU was taken off line for scheduled maintenance in mid-May, the source said.
