Formosa Petrochem idles No. 2 naphtha cracker for planned maintenance

October 11/2010

(ICIS) -- Formosa Petrochemical Corp No. 2 naphtha cracker will shut today for a 40-day planned maintenance. Meanwhile one of the Taiwanese majors other three crude distillation units, shut in late July following an outage, will restart around mid-October.


Formosa was impacted by two separate fires in July- one at its 700,000 tpa No. 1 cracker in early July, and another at its 540,000 bpd refinery late that month. Due to the outage at its No.1 unit, Formosa had delayed the maintenance at its No. 2 cracker to early October from Aug. 20. Two CDUs were brought back online on July 29 and Aug. 3, and are running at around 90% capacity.
