Saudi Arabia's Yansab achieved full output at PE, PP units

October 07/2010

SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Yanbu National Petrochemical Company  (Yansab) has achieved full output at its polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plants at Yanbu, Saudi Arabia, after restarting them at the end of last week, a source close to the company said on Thursday.


The plants were taken off line on 10 September due to an outage at Yansabs 1.3m tonne/year cracker due to technical issues. The cracker was restarted on 25 September.


The unscheduled shutdown had exacerbated the tightness of PP and some grades of PE in the Middle East market in September but supply was now easing, traders and end users said.


Yansab produces 400,000 tonnes/year each of high density PE (HDPE), linear low density PE (LLDPE) and polypropylene (PP).


Yansab, a joint-stock company, is 51%-owned by petrochemical giant Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC).
