SINGAPORE (ICIS)--United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Borouge plans to shut its 1.5m tonne/year ethane cracker and derivative plants in Ruwais at the end of the week for a turnaround, a company spokesman said on Thursday.
The turnaround for the Borouge 2 complex is expected to last around one and a half months, he said, without providing specific dates.
The spokesman had said earlier that the Borouge 1 complex in Ruwais would undergo maintenance last December but did not comment on the restart date of the facilities.
The complex houses a 600,000 tonne/year ethane cracker and two lines of linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) – each with a nameplate capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year.
Borouge is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) and Austria’s Borealis
