SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Pertamina’s residual catalytic cracker (RCC) at Balongan, Indonesia, is currently shut for maintenance and will be restarted around 10 November, a company source said on Friday.

The plant was taken off line on 21 October, the source said.

The RCC has a nameplate propylene capacity of 250,000-260,000 tonnes/year, but usually produces around 200,000 tonnes/year of the monomer.

Pertamina, which is Indonesia’s state-owned refiner, hopes to fix mechanical problems at the plant during the turnaround, the source said.
