SEOUL (ICIS)--South Korea’s SK Energy has adjusted slightly the turnaround schedule for its propylene units in Ulsan this year, a company source said on Tuesday.

Its No 1 fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) with a propylene nameplate capacity of 150,000 tonnes/year is now expected to be taken off line from 26 May to 13 June, the source said.

The company's No 2 FCC, which has a nameplate propylene capacity of 350,000 tonnes/year, will be shut from 17 July to 12 September, he said.

Propylene from SK Energy is typically allocated to the domestic market, or for export on a term basis. The company usually does not have any spot cargoes for sale, the source said.
