SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indian Oil has postponed a scheduled turnaround at its 857,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in Panipat by a week, said a source familiar with the situation on Thursday.

The scheduled maintenance shutdown, which was originally planned to start from 22 April, will now take place for two weeks starting from 28 April, he added.

There were more naphtha exports from Dahej and Kandla as a result because of the impending shutdown, traders said.
