According to market sources, Indorama Ventures’ ethylene plant in Louisiana, the US is set to return production in the last quarter of this year after a quite long offline period. The plant was reportedly shut in mid-February 2001 given reduced demand for petrochemical derivatives and higher oil, natural gas and utility prices.

The idle plant can produce 420,000 ton/year of ethylene and 20,000 tons/year of propylene.
