SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Shell Chemicals' planned maintenance for its polyether polyols facility on Jurong Island, Singapore, has been delayed to June, market sources said on Friday.

The shutdown at the 230,000 tonne/year facility had been planned to take place in May. Shell declined to comment.

The company’s upstream 181,000 tonne/year propylene oxide (PO) plant will operate fully during the month-long maintenance.

At the same site, Shell has a downstream 80,000 tonne/year monopropylene glycol (MPG) facility that manufactures industrial-grade and pharmaceutical-grade PG or USP.
