SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s Polytama Propindo is eyeing a shutdown at its 380,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant, located in Balongan, West Java, in April, according to a source close to the company.

The reason for the shutdown at plant could not be immediately verified.

The exact dates and duration of the shutdown period were not provided.

Earlier, the plant had undergone a shutdown in October 2013, which was extended to more than two months from the initial one-month schedule, as it could not secure propylene from feedstock supplier Pertamina.
