SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s CPC Corp has postponed a planned turnaround at its new residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) in the Dalin refinery to the third quarter of the year, a company source said on Friday.
The turnaround is now expected to take place “maybe after the No 6 cracker starts up”, said the source without providing further details.
CPC Corp has similarly pushed back the start-up of its new 600,000 tonne/year No 6 naphtha cracker in Linyuan to the third quarter from 1 June amid protests from residents in the area, possibly on environmental concerns, the same source had said.
In June 2012, the company mothballed its 230,000 tonne/year No 3 naphtha cracker at the same Linyuan site to make way for the new cracker.
