SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Iran’s Fanavaran Petrochemical is only expected to have acetic acid cargoes for delivery in May as its 150,000 tonne/year plant at Bandar Imam Khomeini was shut on 19 April because of the ongoing maintenance at its feedstock carbon monoxide (CO) unit, a company official said on Monday.
“The acetic acid plant was shut two days ago and it would be restarted eight days from now,” he said, adding that the plant would be operating at full capacity after the restart.
The company is planning to issue a tender on 27 April to sell an acetic acid cargo of no more than 3,000 tonnes for May delivery, according to the official.
