SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korean producer Yeochun NCC (YNCC) may soon increase the average run rates at its three crackers at Yeosu to 95% from 85% currently, company sources said on Thursday.

YNCC reduced the cracker run rates earlier this week to 85% capacity from 100% because strong typhoon winds forced the shutdown of some downstream polymer units early on 28 August.
