SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s Integrated Refinery Petrochemical Complex (IRPC) plans to continue operating its 350,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in Muang at 95-100% of capacity in September following a drawdown in inventories, a company official said on Tuesday.

The cracker operator was running the cracker at around 90% in July, up by around 20 percentage points from June levels.

“We are operating the cracker at 95-100% in August and we will likely maintain these rates in September because of low inventories,” he said.
