SK Advanced restarted PDH plant following emergency shutdown

November 29/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- SK Advanced Co Ltd restarted its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Ulsan, South Korea on 20 November 2019 following an emergency shutdown four days ago, according to CommoPlast.

Thus, this unit was taken off-stream on 16 November, 2019.

Located in Ulsan, South Korea, the plant has a propylene production capacity of 600,000 mt/year.

The company last conducted maintenance works at this unit from 20 November to mid-December 2017.

As MRC informed earlier, Advanced Petrochemical Company was running its 500,000 mt/year PDH unit and a polypropylene (PP) unit of 450,000 mt/year, at its Jubail complex at 40% capacity, due to the Saudi oil attack that happened on 14 September, 2019, which reduced the company's supply of feedstock.

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.

SK Advanced Co Ltd is a joint venture between South Korea's largest LPG supplier - SK Gas and Saudi Arabia's Advanced Petrochemical Company (APC).
