SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) plans to restart its 300,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) unit at Map Ta Phut on 21 December, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The plant was taken off line at the end of November because of an on-site shortage of ethylene feedstock,

The plant was originally scheduled to resume production on 16 December but the restart failed because of technical issues, the source said.

The producer was not immediately available for comment.
