SINGAPORE (ICIS)--ExxonMobil said on Friday it will be shutting down some units at its Singapore chemical complex from 28 September for planned maintenance.

“The overall duration of this maintenance is expected to last several weeks. This is a scheduled maintenance,” the company said in a statement, without specifying the units that will be taken off line.

The turnaround at the Singapore Chemical Plant (SCP) will involve detailed inspection of equipment, routine maintenance and the installation of “facility improvement projects”, it said without elaborating.

“During the units’ shut down and start up, some flaring may occur but it will be kept to a minimum,” it added.

SCP is ExxonMobil Chemical’s largest petrochemical complex in the world. It has a 900,000 tonne/year cracker and a 1m tonne/year cracker at its production site on Jurong Island.
