Egypt’s SIDPEC operating at full capacity

A source from SIDPEC commented that their HDPE plant is currently running at full capacity. The producer had to shut down their HDPE lines briefly due to a lack of ethane gas supplies from their gas supplier GASCO.

SIDPEC had restarted their HDPE film and blow moulding swing line, which started to operate at half capacity, last week shortly after a 24 hour shutdown. However, they failed to resume operations on their HDPE injection production line.

This week, a source from the producer commented, “We resumed our plant’s operations completely as of April 9 and we are now operating at full capacity. We currently hold sufficient ethane gas supplies and we will start our deliveries as of today. This week, we are planning to deliver HDPE injection and film grades to the market since our HDPE film/blow moulding swing line is set to produce HDPE film until April 20. Meanwhile, demand has been gradually improving but ongoing liquidity issues are still hindering our sales performance in the local market.”
