SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Zhangjiagang Yangzijang Petrochemical is planning to shut on 4 July its 600,000 tonne/year propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Jiangsu province, market sources said on Thursday.

Operations will stop for around 15-20 days in order for the company to revamp the plant’s chiller, sources said.

The company could not be immediately reached for comment.

Meanwhile, the company’s 400,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) plant located at the same site and two oxo-alcohols facilities operated by its joint venture partner Jiangsu Huachang Chemical were shut earlier this week as a result of technical issues.

Oriental Energy owns a 56% stake in Zhangjiagang Yangzijang Petrochemical. The other shareholders Jiangsu Feixiang Chemical and Jiangsu Huachang Chemical each have a 22% stake in the company.
