SINGAPORE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>Indonesia's Chandra Asri is currently operating its 600,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at Cilegon in West Java at a higher rate of close to 100% since 6-7 October, a company official said on Wednesday.
“We raised operating rates around 6-7 October to close to 100% because we need the propylene,” he said, adding that the cracker was operating at 85-87% capacity previously and it is likely to operate at near 100% for the rest of the month.
Chandra Asri is the sole cracker operator in Indonesia. It also operates a high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing facility in Cilegon that has a production capacity of 200,000-225,000 tonnes/year.By: Helen Lee+65 6780 4359
