SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea's SK Energy plans to restart its No 2 fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) in Ulsan only in September as the facility will need to be shut for a longer period because of plant equipment upgrades, a company source said on Thursday.

The FCC, with a nameplate propylene capacity of 350,000 tonnes/year, will be taken off line from 24 July to 20 September and will not be restarted on 20 August as previously reported, he said.

SK’s No 1 FCC at the same site, which can produce 150,000 tonnes/year of propylene, is still scheduled for maintenance from 20 May to 8 June.
