SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) is in the process of restarting its 460,000 tonne/year I-1 gas cracker in Map Ta Phut after around 40 days of maintenance, a company source said on Monday.

The cracker is expected to attain on-specification production in a few days, the source added.

Operations at the company’s 100,000 tonne/year propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit will resume later this week, the source said.

Both the I-1 cracker and the PDH unit were shut on 9 February.
