Pertamina to resume production at PP unit in Indonesia after unplanned outage

July 06/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Pertamina is in plans to bring on-stream its polypropylene (PP) unit early this week, according to Apic-online.

The company undertook an unplanned shutdown at the unit on June 26, 2020, following an unspecified technical glitch at the upstream RFCC unit that causes a disruption of the propylene feeds. Thus, the unit is to remain shut for around 10-12 days.

Located in Plaju, Indonesia, the PP unit has a production capacity of 45,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed earlier, in May 2016, PT Pertamina and Russias Rosneft OAO signed a cooperation agreement that includes a plan to build a new oil refinery in the Southeast Asian nation. Pertamina, which hasn't built a new refinery since 1997, will be the majority shareholder in the facility at Tuban, East Java. The two companies may invest USD12 billion to USD13 billion in the refinery project which includes a petrochemical unit, Dwi Soetjipto, president director of Pertamina, told a press conference after signing the accord.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market was 457,930 tonnes in January-May 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Deliveris of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.

Pertamina is an Indonesian state-owned oil and natural gas corporation based in Jakarta. It was created in August 1968 by the merger of Pertamin (established 1961) and Permina (established 1957). Pertamina is the world's largest producer and exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
