SINGAPORE (ICIS)--The Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore (PCS) plans to shut its 450,000 tonne/year No 1 naphtha cracker at Ayer Merbau in Jurong Island for a turnaround in the middle of next year, a company source said on Thursday.
The scheduled turnaround is expected to take place in June-July for around 30-40 days but the turnaround dates have yet to be finalised, he said.
PCS also runs a 650,000 tonne/year No 2 naphtha cracker at the site. The plant had undergone maintenance in 2011 and the next turnaround is expected in 2016, he added.
