Daesan cracker to be shut by Hanwha Total

January 22/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Hanwha Total Petrochemical is in plans to shut its Deasan cracker for maintenance and debottlenecking exercise, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in South Korea informed that the company is expected to start maintenance along with the capacity expansion at the cracker in end-March, 2019. The cracker is expected to complete turnaround and expansion process in 40-45 days.

Following the expansion, the ethylene capacity will be increased by 310,000 MT and propylene capacity will be increased by 120,000 MT.

Located at Daesan in South Korea, currently the cracker has an ethylene capacity of 1.09 million mt/year and propylene capacity of 640,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, Hanwha Total Petrochemical is investing approximately USD500m to further expand its Daesan integrated refining and petrochemical complex in South Korea. The company operates as a 50/50 joint venture (JV) between Total and Hanwha. The planned investment is expected to increase annual polypropylene capacity by almost 60% to 1.1 million tonnes and ethylene capacity by 10% to 1.5 million tonnes by the end of 2020.
