Unplanned outage reported at Beek cracker by SABIC

May 22/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) has taken off-stream its SABIC Olefins 4 cracker owing to technical issues, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in the Netherlands informed that the cracker has halted operations at the cracker on May 10, 2019. Further details on duration of the shutdown could not be ascertained.

Located in beek, the Netherlands, the cracker has an ethylene production capacity of 690,000 mt/year and a propylene production capacity of 360,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, in response to customer needs, in February 2018, Sabic announced projects in Asia and the Netherlands designed to increase global capacity for two of its high-performance engineering thermoplastic materials, Ultem and Noryl resins. The planned new production facility in Singapore is expected to go online in the first half of 2021. The company also plans to recommission operations at its Bergen op Zoom PPE resin plant in the Netherlands by the end of 2019 to produce polyphenylene ether (PPE), the base resin for its line of Noryl resins and oligomers.

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) ranks among the world's top petrochemical companies. The company is among the world�s market leaders in the production of polyethylene, polypropylene and other advanced thermoplastics, glycols, methanol and fertilizers.
