SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Chandra Asri plans to ramp up production at its 600,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at Cilegon in West Java next month following a drawdown on its polymer inventories, a company official said on Thursday.
“We plan to raise the cracker operating rates to 90% because we are low on polyethylene and propylene inventories,” he said.
The cracker is currently running at around 85% of capacity, the company official said.
Chandra Asri is the sole cracker operator in ?xml:namespace>Indonesia. It also operates a high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing facility in Cilegon that has a production capacity of 200,000-225,000 tonnes/year.By: Helen Lee+65 6780 4359
