SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) expects to restart its 140,000 tonne/year ethylene oxide (EO) and 400,000 tonne/year ethylene glycol (EG) units in Kerteh, Terengganu, later this week, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plants, along with EO derivative units at the same site, were shut on 21 June because of equipment failure.
PCG declared force majeure to its customers on 28 June because of the mechanical outage, the source said.
The company has sought for additional cargoes to help relieve tight supply, the source said.
