Philippines JG Summit to restart PE unit late November

November 01/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- JG Summit Petrochemical, a major petrochemical producer in the Philippines, is expected to restart its polyethylene (PE) unit at Batangas after maintenance in late November, reported NCT with reference to market sources.

The turnaround at this facility began on 6 October, 2019.

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

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 1,589,580 tonnes in the first nine months of 2019, up by 7% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased.
