SINGAPORE (ICIS)--India’s ONGC Mangalore Petrochemicals Ltd (OMPL) plans to commission its new aromatics plant in New Mangalore at the end of 2013 or in early 2014, a company source said on Monday.

The complex comprises a 920,000 tonne/year paraxylene (PX) plant and a 270,000 tonne/year benzene unit, the source said.

Previously, the company had targeted to start-up this October but delays in completing the required pipelines along the shore postponed the commission date.
