MELBOURNE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) plans to restart its 60,000 tonne/year butyl glycol (BG) plant at Kerteh in Terengganu this week after taking it off line on 6 December, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The company plans to restart various facilities at its Kerteh petrochemical complex this week, after shutting them on 6 December because of a utilities supply interruption, the company said in a statement on its website on 16 December.

The unscheduled shutdown has had a limited impact on PCG’s BG supply because of the relatively short duration, the source added.

However, for some petrochemical products, PCG has declared a force majeure on contractual volumes, the source said.
