SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC) plans to shut its No 2 residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) in Mailiao for a turnaround on 19 March, a company source said on Wednesday.

The scheduled maintenance shutdown for the No 2 unit, which can produce around 375,000 tonnes/year of propylene, is expected to last until 21 June, he said.

There is no turnaround slated for the No 1 RFCC unit, which has the same propylene production capacity, this year, he added.
