Fushun Petrochemical to shut PE plants in China for maintenance

April 08/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Fushun Petrochemical, PetroChina's subsidiary, is in plans to take its three polyethylene (PE) plants off-stream for a maintenance turnaround, according to CommoPlast.

Thus, the company is likely to shut these plants on 10 Apri, 2021. The turnaround is likely to last for 56 days. Thus, the company's PE plant is going to come back from the repairs on 5 June, 2021.

Located in Fushun, Liaoning province in China, the high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant has a production capacity of 350,000 mt/year, the linear low density polyethylenen (LLDPE) plant has a production capacity of 450,000 mt/year and the swing HDPE/LLDPE plant has a capacity of 80,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported earlier, a subsidiary of PetroChina - Fushun Petrochemical - in the second half of 2012 started production of basic petrochemical products at its new plant in Fushun, Liaoning Province, China.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 241,030 tonnes in January 2021 versus 217,890 tonnes a year earlier. Only shipments of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) increased.

PetroChina Company Limited is a Chinese oil company and is the listed arm of state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), headquartered in Dongcheng District, Beijing. It is China's biggest oil producer and the most profitable company in Asia.
