SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) is expected to continue to run its 515,000 tonne/year mixed-feed I-4 No 1 cracker at Map Ta Phut at a reduced rate of around 85% of capacity before a planned maintenance shutdown in July, a company source said on Friday.
Technical issues are affecting the cracker’s run rate but the source did not provide further details.
