SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japan’s JX Nippon Oil & Energy on Thursday restarted its 460,000 tonne/year naphtha cracker in Kawasaki after a 10-day outage, a company source said on Thursday.
“We plan to increase the run rates to 100% in about a week,’’ the source said.
The company’s olefins conversion unit (OCU) at the same site, which can produce around 140,000 tonnes/year of propylene, is scheduled to be restarted on 7 September, the source said.
The cracker and the OCU were shut on 19 August because of a technical problem.
