Philippines JG Summit PP unit to restart early Nov

November 01/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Philippines producer JG Summit is expected to restart its polypropylene (PP) line at the beginning of November upon completion of maintenance, reported NCT with reference to market sources.

The turnaround at this plant began on 6 October, 2019. Initially, it was planned to be shut until end-November.

Located in Batangas City, the Philippines, the plant has a production capacity of 190,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed earlier, this year, the company already conducted an unscheduled maintenance turnaround at its PP unit in Batangas from early June to 1 July.

Besides, 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, the estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 976,790 tonnes in January-September 2019, up by 4% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.
