PTTGC to shut No. 2 HDPE plant in Thailand for maintenance

October 29/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) is planning to take one of its HDPE lines off-stream for routine maintenance, according to CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

The number 2 unit is expected to remain offline from 27 November to 16 December 2019.

The No. 2 HDPE unit has an annual capacity of 300,000 tons.

The other two units with a combined capacity of 500,000 tons/year are not affected by the shutdown.  

As MRC wrote previously, PTT started commercial operations at its new 400,000 mt/year metallocene C6 linear low density polyethylene plant at Map Ta Phut, Thailand, in the first quarter of 2018.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,436,390 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased.

PTT Global Chemical is a leading player in the petrochemical industry and owns several petrochemical facilities with a combined capacity of 8.45 million tonnes a year.
