Thai PTT to begin commercial production at new metallocene LLDPE plant Q1 2018

April 27/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PTT is on track to start commercial operations at its new 400,000 mt/year metallocene C6 linear low density polyethylene plant at Map Ta Phut, Thailand, in the first quarter of 2018, a company source said Tuesday, as per Apic-online.

PTT will start up the plant by the end of this year, the source said.

"We currently switch the normal C4 LLDPE units to metallocene-based C6 LLDPE production, and are facing a few quality issues, hence our decision to build a dedicated metallocene plant," the source explained.

PTT currently has a total capacity of 800,000 mt/year of high density polyethylene (HDPE), 300,000 mt/year of low density polyethylene and 400,000 mt/year of LLDPE at the same site.

As MRC wrote before, PTTGC restarted LLDPE plant on 3 April, 2016, following a maintenance turnaround. The plant was shut for maintenance in early-March 2016. Located at Map Ta Phut in Thailand, the LLDPE plant has a production capacity of 400,000 mt/year.

PTT Global Chemical is a leading player in the petrochemical industry and owns several petrochemical facilities with a combined capacity of 8.45 million tonnes a year.
