MOSCOW (MRC) -- Sadara Chemical has restarted its three polyethylene (PE ) units following a maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Saudi Arabia informed that the company has resumed operations at all PE units last weekend. The units were shut for a planned maintenance in the last week of December 2016.

Located at located in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia, the PE units comprising two LLDPE units and one LDPE unit have a production capacity of 350,000 mt/year each.
