SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia's Chandra Asri is running its 600,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at Cilegon in West Java at 85% capacity after resuming operations at the plant early in the week, a company source said on Thursday.

The cracker was shut during the weekend of 15-16 December due to a power outage. No further details were provided.

Chandra Asri, Indonesia’s sole cracker operator, had eventually trimmed production at its cracker to 85% capacity in December because of negative margins, the source added. The cracker was running at 90-95% of capacity in November.
