SK Advanced PDH plant in Ulsan operates at full capacity utilisation

March 24/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Major producer SK Advanced increased capacity utilisation at its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant to 100% on 19 March after a planned outage, according to S&P Global.

The company resumed operations at the plant on 9 March 2020. The plant was shut for maintenance on January 29, 2020 and was expected to resume production in end-February.

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

As MRC informed before, SK Advanced last undertook an emergency shutdown at its PDH plant at Ulsan on November 16, 2019 owing to a technical issue. The unit was brought on-stream on November 20, 2019.  Located in Ulsan, South Korea, the plant has a propylene production capacity of 600,000 mt/year.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 127,240 tonnes in January 2020, up by 33% year on year. ZapSibNeftekhim's homopolymer PP accounted for the main increase in shipments.

SK Advanced, a joint venture of South Korea's largest LPG supplier SK Gas and Advanced Petrochemical Company (APC) of Saudi Arabia.
