November 07/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Karpatneftekhim (Kalush, Ivano-Frankivsk region), Ukraine"s largest petrochemical plant, took off-stream its production of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) for maintenance, according to ICIS-MRC Price report.

The plant"s clients said the scheduled turnaround at HDPE and PVC production capacities started on 5 November and it will be quite long. Karpatneftekhim plans to resume its HDPE production on 4 December and PVC production - a few days later.

This is virtually the first shutdown for maintenance after a period of more than a year of the plant"s operations.
