MELBOURNE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) on 6 December shut various facilities at its Kerteh petrochemical complex, the company said in an announcement posted on its website on 16 December.

An interruption in the supply of utilities affected production at PCG’s cracker and related downstream facilities, as well as its aromatics and ammonia plants, the company said.

PCG has taken immediate steps to minimise the impact and expects to resume production within this week, it said.
