SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Kuwait’s EQUATE expects to restart its 600,000 tonne/year No 2 monoethylene glycol (MEG) unit in Shuaiba on 21 September after planned maintenance, a source close to the company said on Friday.
The plant was shut on 8 September for planned two-week long maintenance, the source said.
The shutdown had little impact on the MEG supply as the company has prepared stocks for its customers, he added.
EQUATE’s 550,000 tonne/year MEG unit at the same site is currently running at full operating rate, the source said.
EQUATE is a joint venture between US firm Dow Chemical and Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Co (PIC).
