SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s SK Energy has finalised the maintenance schedule for its two fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) units in Ulsan this year, a company source said on Wednesday.
The No 1 FCC, with a propylene nameplate capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year, will be shut for a turnaround from 20 May to 8 June, the source said, dispelling earlier reports of a March shutdown schedule.
The No 2 FCC – with a nameplate propylene capacity of 350,000 tonnes/year – will be taken off line for a longer period from 24 July to 20 August to upgrade some of the plant’s equipment, the source said.
