SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Fushun Petrochemical, a PetroChina subsidiary, plans to shut its 800,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in Fushun, Liaoning province for scheduled maintenance in early May, a company source said on Thursday.

The shutdown period will last one month, according to the source.

China’s Fushun Petrochemical also runs a 150,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker at the same site but the plant is not scheduled for maintenance during the period, the source added.

The larger cracker was started up on 28 September 2012.
