SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Indonesia’s PT Petro Oxo Nusantara (PON) will restart its 140,000 tonne/year 2-ethylhexanol plant (2-EH) at Gresik by the week ended 29 June, a company source said on Friday.

The plant was shut since 22-23 June for the replacement of a gas component, the source said.

The restart is unlikely to have a large impact on the market because July discussions for India, a main export destination for the company, have been largely concluded, the source added.

The plant will run at 100% following this restart, the source said.
