SINGAPORE (ICIS)--ExxonMobil is expected to have a turnaround at its 900,000 tonne/year cracker on Jurong Island this month, market sources said on Wednesday.

One source said the shutdown could be from mid-September to mid-October.

A spokesperson said it was not the company’s practice to discuss the operational details of its facilities.

ExxonMobil also runs a second 1m tonne/year cracker at the same site, which was started in May this year.
