Indias Haldia halts exports of PE, PP due to outage

October 07/2010

SINGAPORE (ICIS) -- Indias Haldia Petrochemicals halted exports of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) this week due to an unscheduled shutdown at its cracker complex in West Bengal state, a source close to the company said on Thursday.

The company would likely resume shipping out the polymer products when the petrochemical complex restarts on 9 October, the source said.

Currently, the company has limited inventories of PE and PP, which have to be targeted at key domestic customers, so theres no export availability, the source added.


The companys complex at Haldia, in West Bengal state, houses a cracker with a nameplate capacity of 700,000 tonnes/year of ethylene. It also includes derivative plants that produce 700,000 tonnes/year of PE and 370,000 tonnes/year of PP.
