SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Jilin Petrochemical’s 300,000 tonne/year high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plant in China’s Jilin province has been shut since last week because of technical problems, a company source said on Thursday.

The plant was taken off line on 3-4 October, while the Chinese market is on a week-long National Day celebration, the source said.

The HDPE plant may be restarted within this week, the source said.

Jilin Petrochemical, which is a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina, also has a 300,000 tonne/year linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant at the site.
