Thai Polyethylene to restart its LDPE plant in Thailand in early May

April 21/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Thai Polyethylene, part of Siam Cement Group (SCG), plans to resume operations at its low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant in Thailand in early May, 2021, after a scheduled turnaround, reported S&P Global with reference to a company source.

The company has halted operations at this unit on 9 March, 2021. The unit was initially expected to restart on 22 March, 2021.

Located at Map Tha Phut in Thailand, the plant has a production capacity of 160,000 mt/year of LDPE.

As MRC wrote previously, SCG Chemicals ,took its high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant off-stream for a maintenance turnaround on November 26, 2019. It remained under maintenance until December 14, 2019. Located in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, the plant has a production capacity of 200,000 mt/year.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, February estimated LDPE consumption in Russia decreased to 36,580 tonnes from 61,210 tonnes a year earlier. Russian producers raised their export LDPE shipments because of more attractive prices in comparison with the domestic market. Russia's estimated LDPE consumption totalled about 97,790 tonnes in the first two months of 2021, up by 19% year on year.  

SCG Chemicals is a subsidiary of SCG and is one of SCGТs 3 core businesses consisting of Chemicals, Paper and Cement-Building Materials. SCG embarked upon the chemicals business in 1989. At present, SCG Chemicals manufactures and supplies a full range of petrochemical products ranging from upstream petrochemicals such as Olefins, intermediate petrochemicals such as Styrene Monomer, PTA, and MMA, to downstream petrochemicals such as Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, and Polystyrene resins. SCG Chemicals is now one of the largest integrated petrochemical companies in Thailand and a key industry leader in the Asia-Pacific region.
