SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) is in the process of restarting its 515,000 tonne/year mixed-feed I-4 No 1 cracker at Map Ta Phut, a company source said on Thursday.

“The restart failed earlier, so we are trying to restart today [Thursday],” the source said.

The cracker was shut down on 19 November on some mechanical issues and it was expected to restart on 13 December, according to an earlier story from ICIS.

PTTGC’s other cracker at the site – a 400,000 tonne/year I-4 No 2 ethane cracker – is currently operating at around 90% of capacity, according to the source.
