Inspection at the unit is tentatively expected to last for about 10 days from the shutdown date, and the company expects to restart the unit once it is completed, the source said.
The unit was shut on 12 October for inspection works to be carried out, the source said without further elaborating.
“The shutdown will not have any impact on contract supply, but the company will reduce availability for the spot market,” the source said.
Honam Petrochemical is currently running its other 250,000 tonne/year MEG unit at the same site at 100% capacity, the source added.
