SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Dalian West Pacific Petrochemical (WEPEC) plans to shut its 100,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant in Liaoning province on 17 June for regular maintenance, a company source said on Thursday.

The turnaround will last for a month, the source added.

According to market players, the shutdown of the PP plant will have minimal impact on the Chinese domestic PP market because of its small capacity.

The company is jointly owned by China’s Sinochem, PetroChina, France's Total and other Chinese firms.
