Shanghai SECCO Petrochemical halted operations at its naphtha cracker

September 09/2011

(ICIS) -- Chinas Shanghai SECCO Petrochemical halted operations at its 1.2m tonne/year naphtha cracker and several downstream plants overnight following a blast at an olefins pipeline, sources close to the company said on Friday.

The cracker is the single largest ethylene plant in China. The cause of the blast at the companys olefins pipeline in the petrochemical complex in Jinshan district of Shanghai is under investigation, with no definite restart dates set for the shut plants.

It is too early to say when the cracker will restart, said another source close to the company. The company does not need to import ethylene spot cargoes since some of the derivative units were also taken off line, he said.
