FPCC will keep five facilities in Mailiao shut

August 10/2011

(ICIS) -- Taiwans Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPCC) will keep five facilities in Mailiao, including two pipelines, shut for an indefinite period of time to ensure safe operations, following a string of fires at the petrochemical complex, a company spokesperson said on Wednesday.

These include a 700 KTa No 1 naphtha cracker, the propylene and hydrogen pipelines attached to the cracker, a 540.000 bbl/day refinery and an 80.000 bbl/day residual desulphurisation (RDS) unit that were directly affected by the fires, the FPCC spokesperson said.

FPCCs 100 KTa epichlorohydrin (ECH) plant is due to be shut for a month of maintenance in September, according to a company source.

FPCCs sister companies, Formosa Plastics Corp (FPC), Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corp (FCFC) and Nan Ya Plastics are also due to submit the maintenance schedules of their Mailiao facilities on 10 August.
