SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s Hyundai Cosmo (HC) Petrochemical does not plan to conduct any turnarounds at both its No 1 and No 2 aromatics units in Daesan in 2014, a company source said on Friday.
The No 1 aromatics unit can produce 380,000 tonnes/year of paraxylenes (PX) and 120,000 tonnes/year of benzene, while the No 2 aromatics unit is able to produce 800,000 tonnes/year of PX and 120,000 tonnes/year of benzene.
“We had scheduled turnaround this year, so next year we will skip,” the source said.
The company expects to have more updates on the status of its No 2 plant in the following week.
