SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s Haldia Petrochemicals Ltd (HPL) is running both its polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plants in Haldia, West Bengal, at 30% of capacity because of a lack of naphtha feedstock, market sources said on Friday.
The company operates a 670,000 tonne/year cracker; a 370,000 tonne/year high density PE (HDPE)/linear low density PE (LLDPE) swing plant and a stand-alone 330,000 tonne/year HDPE facility, and a 340,000 tonne/year PP plant.
It remains unclear how long reduced operations will continue, they added.
Company officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
