TPC is not going to conduct turnaround at its LDPE plant in Singapore in 2021

July 21/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The Polyolefins Company (TPC) has decided not to shut its low denisty polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Jurong Island, Singapore in mid-July 2021 for maintenance, according to CommoPlast with reference to market sources.

The turnaround at this plant with a capacity of 260,000 mt/year of LDPE was initially expected to last for 45 days.

TPC last conducted maintenance at its LDPE plant in Jurong Island in July 2018.

The company also operated polypropylene (PP) plant with the combined capacty of all lines of 680,000 mt/year of PP at the same site, where a major 45-day overhaul was scheduled to begin in mid-July. Only part of this plant would be shut during the time, according to a source close to the producer. Affected grades might include PP random copolymers and terpolymer, wherease the homo-PP line would remain operating.

The company's polyolefins plants in Singapore receive feedstock from No. 2 cracker of the Petrochemical Corporation of Singapore (PCS), which was also to be shut for 30 days of repairs in July.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, May estimated LDPE consumption in Russia grew to 47,730 tonnes from 37,630 tonnes a month earlier. Russian producers increased their LDPE shipments to the domestic market by reducing exports. Russia's estimated LDPE consumption totalled about 235,610 tonnes in the first five months of 2021, up by only 1% year on year.
