SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jilin Petrochemical has shut its 275,000 tonne/year liner low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant in Jilin province on 15 May for maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The maintenance will last for two weeks, the source added.

Local distributors said the supply may decrease during the maintenance as Jilin Petrochemical is one of the major LLDPE producers.

Jilin Petrochemical is a subsidiary of state-owned oil giant PetroChina.
