Eneos Corporation to restart its FCC unit in Sendai

August 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Eneos Corporation (formerly known as JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy) is on track to restart its  fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) unit in Japan on 10 August, 2020, according to Apic-online.

The company halted operations at this unit on July 28, 2020. 

Located at Sendai, Japan, the FCC unit has a propylene capacity of 100,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy brought on-stream its FCC in Sendai on 2 August, 2019. The unit was shut for maintenance, on June 10, 2019.

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

According to MRC's DataScope report, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.

Japan's largest refiner JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy was renamed ENEOS Corporation on 25 June, 2020, as part of a wider re-organization of the parent company JXTG Holdings. The move, which also involved renaming the parent company to ENEOS Holdings upon approval at its annual shareholders meeting in June 2020, comes as it strives to be a more comprehensive energy and materials company under its 2040 vision announced in May, 2019. JXTG Holdings was formed as a result of a merger between JX Holdings and TonenGeneral in April 2017. This followed the establishment of JX Holdings as a result of the merger between Nippon Oil and Nippon Mining Holdings in April 2010.
