SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s S-Oil plans to shut its fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) unit at Onsan for a turnaround starting 1 July, a company source said on Thursday.
The FCC unit, which has a nameplate propylene capacity of 200,000 tonnes/year, is expected to be off line until the first week of August, he said.
S-Oil supplies propylene mainly to domestic customers such as acrylonitrile producers Tongsuh Petrochemical and Taekwang Industrial.
