SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC) has extended an on-going turnaround at its propylene units to 10 July from late June because of mechanical issues, a company source said on Tuesday.
He did not provide further details.
FPCC’s residue fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) No 2 in Mailiao was shut on 19 March and was initially scheduled to restart on 21 June. The unit can produce around 375,000 tonnes/year of propylene.
An olefins conversion unit (OCU) at the same site, which can produce 250,000 tonnes/year of propylene, was shut on 26 April and was earlier scheduled to resume operations on 24 June.
