SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Polytama Propindo plans to restart its 380,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant at Balongan in West Java, Indonesia, on 3 November, after shutting the plant on 7 October, a source at plastics distribution firm Bukitmega Masabadi said on Monday.
The producer had to shut the PP plant because its propylene supply was disrupted when its feedstock supplier Pertamina shut its facilities for maintenance, the source said.
Pertamina planned to shut its residual fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC) and residual catalytic cracking off-gas to propylene (ROPP) unit for about a month.
Polytama Propindo produces PP for Bukitmega Masabadi under a tolling agreement, the source added.
