SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s CNOOC and Shell Petrochemicals Co (CSPC) on 6 January shut its 250,000 tonne/year low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant at Huizhou in southern China's Guangdong province for maintenance, a company source said over the weekend.
The turnaround at the plant may last about four or five days, the source said.
LDPE from the plant is typically sold in the south China market, according to the source.
Local distributors said the supply of LDPE to southern China will likely decrease as a result of the turnaround.
