April 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Vietnams Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical Co will delay maintenance at its Dung Quat refinery until July 27-September 16 due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing with reference to the company's statement.

It was scheduled to conduct maintenance at the 130,000-barrel-per-day refinery from June 12 to August 1.

The company said in a statement late on Monday that travel curbs due to the coronavirus pandemic had affected its preparation for the maintenance.

Binh Son reported a net loss of 2.33 trillion dong ($99.32 million) in the first quarter of this year, it said.

As MRC informed earlier, Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical took its polypropylene (PP) plant off-stream for a maintenance turnaround in June 2017 for a period of around 7 weeks. The exact date shutdown could not be ascertained. Located in Vietnam,the plant has a production capacity of 150,000 mt/year.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market were 192,760 tonnes in January-February 2020, down by 6% year on year. Homopolymer PP accounted for the main decrease in imports.
