NatPet resumed operations at its polypropylene located in Yanbu

October 20/2011

(Arabian oil and gas) -- Alujain Corporation said that its subsidiary National Petrochemical industrial Company (NatPet) has resumed operations at its polypropylene located in Yanbu Industrial city, following the technical problem that hit the plant on October 12. The company announced earlier this month that a technical defect in the dehydrogenation unit in polypropylene complex was the reason behind the shutdown.

Another technical outage caused the a net loss of US$24m equal to the production of 16,000 tonnes of polypropylene, in late September.

This is the third time this year that the company has faced technical issues. The company also announced earlier this year that its polypropylene plant faced a technical problem at the dehydrogenation unit on the 18th of January, with repair work taking five days. As a consequence of this shutdown, NatPet failed to produce 3,500 tonne of polypropylene worth $5 million.
