JG Summit commences turnaround at its PE plant in Philippines

October 08/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- JG Summit Petrochemical, a major petrochemical producer in the Philippines, has started maintenance at its polyethylene (PE) unit at Batangas, reported NCT with reference to the sources.

The company produces 325,000 tons/year of high density polyethylene (HDPE)/linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) at its facility.

The plant is expected to be offline for two months from October to the end of November.

As MRC wrote previously, in November 2017, JG Summit Olefins Corp. awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract to Posco Engineering & Construction to expand an existing naphtha cracker and build a hydrogenation unit in Simlong, Batangas, Philippines.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,255,800 tonnes in the first seven months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased.
