Sources from Egypt’s local PE producers, SIDPEC and ETHYDCO have denied rumors of facing production disruptions, reporting that they are making their deliveries smoothly to the market although they experienced brief shutdowns at their plants.

“Our supplies from GASCO were affected by the recent explosion at their line. However, we took advantage of the situation by solving some electrical problems and we resumed our operations shortly after. Therefore, our deliveries were not much affected by the shutdown. This week, demand is slightly improving and we are in a rush to deliver our cargoes to all of our customers on time," said a source from ETHYDCO.

A source from SIDPEC also reported that they had to shut their plant for only two days during the past week due to reduced ethylene supplies from GASCO. “However, our deliveries to the market were not affected by this brief shutdown as we have good stock levels. Our plant is currently running at full rates and we are delivering HDPE film cargoes this week from our HDPE film and b/m swing line,” added the source.
