SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanghai Golden Phillips Petrochemical Co shut its 135,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant in Shanghai on 20 August, a company source said on Thursday.

The company source did not reveal the reason for the shutdown or the plant’s restart date.

According to a source close to the company, the plant was shut down due to a shortage of feedstock ethylene and it will be off line for more than two weeks.

However, this could not be confirmed with the producer.
