SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s PT Petro Oxo Nusantara (PON) plans to restart its 140,000 tonne/year 2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) plant at Gresik on 1 March, a company source said on Friday.
The company shut its 2-EH unit on 17 February for a catalyst change and annual maintenance, the source said.
Market sources said supply for 2-EH is expected to tighten as a result of the shutdown and several scheduled maintenance shutdowns in the region.
