PetroRabigh reduced rates at its LLDPE plant

December 02/2011

(ICIS) -- Rabigh Refining and Petrochemical (PetroRabigh) is running its linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) plant in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia, at reduced rates because of technical issues, sources close to the company said on Thursday. The nameplate capacity of the LLDPE unit is 600,000 tonnes/year.

The exact operating rates of the plant and the details of the technical problem could not be confirmed with the company. We are told that there will be reduced allocations for January shipments because of this technical problem, said an importer in east China.

At the same site, the companys 300,000 tonne/year high density polyethylene (HDPE) line and a 700,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) unit are running at close to 100%, industry sources said.
