The start-up schedule of the RFCC has been postponed several times after its initial plan to start up in late May.
The RFCC can produce 400,000-450,000 tonnes/year of propylene and will mainly target domestic customers.
“We expect to achieve on-spec production in November,” the source said, adding that the company will need to export some propylene from November onwards.
Propylene spot cargoes were offered at $1,340-1,350/tonne (€1,032-1,040/tonne) CFR (cost & freight) northeast (NE)
