JX Nippon plans to restart a cracker in Japan

September 23/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- JX Nippon Oil & Energy is in plans to restart its residue fluid catalytic cracker (RFCC), as per Apic-Online.

A Polymerupdate source in Japan informed that the unit is likely to be restarted on October 20, 2013. It is currently under a maintenance turnaround.

Located at Sendai in Japan, the RFCC unit has a propylene production capacity of 100,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp. is considering shutting down oil refinery operations at its Muroran plant in Hokkaido by the end of March 2014. JX Nippon will keep the Muroran refinery as a manufacturing plant for petrochemical products and keep its employees through job displacement.

The Nippon Oil Corporation, or NOC or Shin-Nisseki is a Japanese petroleum company. Its businesses include the exploration, importation, and refining of crude oil; the manufacture and sale of petroleum products, including olefines (ethylene, propylene) and aromatics.
