December 06/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) is expected to shut its high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Thailand informed that the company is likely to shut the plant in February/March 2018, for a maintenance turnaround. The plant is expected to remain offline for around 2 weeks.

Located at Map Ta Phut in Thailand, the HDPE plant has a production capacity of 250,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed before, PTT is on track to start commercial operations at its new 400,000 mt/year metallocene C6 linear low density polyethylene (MLLDPE) plant at Map Ta Phut, Thailand, in the first quarter of 2018. PTT will start up the plant by the end of this year.

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

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.
