SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesian state-owned energy firm Pertamina restarted its residual catalytic cracker (RCC) at Balongan on 28 November after an extended turnaround, a company source said on Friday.

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.

“The cracker was restarted on Wednesday and is running normally now,” the source said without disclosing the plant's current operating rate.

The unit was shut down on 21 October for maintenance that was initially expected to last around 20 days. The source did not provide a reason for the delay in restarting the RCC.
