SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Panjin Ethylene, a subsidiary of Huajin Chemicals Group, plans to shut its 180,000 tonne/year and 450,000 tonne/year naphtha crackers as well as derivative plants at Panjin city of Liaoning province in August for regular maintenance, a company source said on Friday.

The shutdown will last for 20-30 days, the source added.

Some market players said the turnaround will start at the beginning of August, but confirmation by the producer was not immediately available.

The derivative plants include two 65,000 tonne/year and a 300,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) units as well as two polypropylene (PP) units, with capacities of 50,000 tonnes/year and 250,000 tonnes/year respectively.
