October 09/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Philippine Propylene Inc. (PPI) has extended the maintenance at its polypropylene (PP) unit at Mariveles in Bataan province to October 15, reported NCT with reference to sources close to the company.

The company experienced an unplanned outage in mid-September due to a technical issue and had earlier planned to restart the plant last week.

The unit has an initial capacity of 160,000/tons/year which could be increased 225,000 tons/year, according to the company website.

Meanwhile, as MRC informed before, another Philippines producer - JG Summit - has started maintenance at its PP and polyethylene (PE) units at Batangas. The company produces 190,000 tons/year of PP and 325,000 tons/year of high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) at its facilities. The plants will be offline for two months from October to the end of November.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, the estimated consumption of PP in the Russian market totalled 694,210 tonnes in January-June 2019, up by 14% year on year. The supply of propylene block copolymers (PP-block) and propylene homopolymers (PP-homo) increased.
