The company runs a 1m tonne/year cracker in Yeosu and another 1.07m tonne/year cracker in Daesan, according to ICIS data.
Honam Petrochemical cut the operating rate of its 370,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Yeosu to 80% capacity, from 100% at around 06:00 hours South Korean time on Tuesday morning (2100 GMT Monday) because of a brief power outage, another company source said.
The operating rate was raised back to 100% within two hours, the source said.
Its other HDPE plant at Yeosu with a 230,000 tonne/year capacity was not affected by the power disruption, he said.
