LONDON (ICIS)--SABIC is planning to restart its butadiene (BD) extraction unit at Wilton in the UK this weekend, a company source said on Friday.

“We are in the process of restarting,” the source said.

The company source added that confirmation that the restart had gone to plan would be available next week.

The unit which has the capacity to produce 100,000 tonnes/year of butadiene was shut down on 1 March because of a fouling issue.

SABIC recently postponed its planned March-April turnaround at its Geleen, Netherlands site until 2014.
