SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Saudi Arabia's Farabi Petrochemical Co plans to shut down its 150,000 tonne/year linear alkylbenzene (LAB) plant on 1 November for scheduled maintenance, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
The plant, which is located in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia, will be shut for two weeks, the source added.
“There will be no disruptions in supply to regular customers,” the source said.
Demand for LAB is stable in the key detergents sector in Saudi Arabia, market sources said.
Earlier this month the company awarded a contract for a concept study of its planned Jazan project in Saudi Arabia to petrochemicals engineering firm Foster Wheeler.
