SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) is running its 75,000 tonne/year ethanolamines unit in Kerteh, Terengganu, at 80% capacity, market sources said on Wednesday.

There was a mechanical issue associated with the plant at this juncture, hence the plant could not be operated at full capacity, they added. There is no planned maintenance for the plant this year.

The unit was briefly taken off line from late November to early December last year because of a technical issue.

The company could not be immediately reached for comment.
