June 08/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Haldia Petrochemicals Ltd (HPL) is likely to resume production at its cracker and downstream plants following a maintenance turnaround, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in India informed that the complex is expected to restart towards the end of this week. The complex was shut on May 10, 2018 for a period of about 20-25 days.

Located at Haldia in the eastern Indian state of west Bengal, the complex can produce 700,000 mt/year of ethylene and 350,000 mt/year of propylene and provides feedstock to a 330,000 mt/year high density PE plant, a 370,000 mt/year HDPE/linear low PE swing plant and a 350,000 mt/year polypropylene unit.

As MRC informed before, in October 2016, HPL reported a massive fire at the petrochemical complex located in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal.

Haldia Petrochemicals Ltd is a modern naphtha based petrochemical complex at Haldia, West Bengal, India. Haldia has played the role of a catalyst in emergence of more than 500 downstream processing industries in West Bengal with a capacity to process more than 3,50,000 TPA of polymers, among which are polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).
