SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp will reduce the operating rate of its 385,000 tonne/year No 4 naphtha cracker in Linyuan after mid-December in line with a turnaround at its downstream styrene monomer (SM) plant, a company official said on Thursday.

“We may reduce the operating rate of the No 4 cracker in Linyuan after mid-December, in line with the one-month turnaround at the downstream styrene monomer plant,” the official said, adding that the extent of the cut has yet to be confirmed.

The No 4 cracker and the company’s 500,000 tonne/year No 5 cracker at Kaohsiung are currently operating at 100% capacity, he added.
