SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s largest refiner JX Nippon Oil & Energy has ramped up production at its No 1 fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) in Negishi, Japan, to about 90% after its restart earlier this month, a company source said on Friday.
The restart, on 10 January, was postponed slightly because of a lack of feedstock but the source did not provide further details.
The No 1 FCC, which can produce 85,000 tonnes/year of propylene, was shut on 20 October.
The company’s No 2 residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) at the same site, which has the same propylene capacity, was running normally during this period, the source added.
