Thai PTTCH plans 13 day plant shutdown

Thailand's largest olefins maker, PTT Chemical PCL PTTC.BK, plans to shut down its I4-1 olefins plant for maintenance for 13 days until 12 February. The shutdown will result in a reduction in production by 29,000 tons. This amounts to about 1.7% of the company's annual capacity of 1.713 mln tons. PTTCH uses natural gas for about 75% of its feedstock and naphtha for the balance 25% to produce ethylene and propylene.
