Malaysia’s Lotte Titan restarting crackers at Pasir Gudang

According to market sources, Malaysia’s Lotte Chemical Titan started the process of the restart of its No. 1 and No. 2 crackers at its complex located in Pasir Gudang on Wednesday, after unexpectedly shutting down the whole complex earlier this week due to water supply cut.

The No. 1 and No. 2 crackers have a total propylene production capacity of 420,000 tons/year while the total ethylene production capacity is around 1.1 million tons/year.

The company also has a 220,000 tons/year HDPE plant and a 230,000 tons/year LDPE plant in the complex.

PP and PE lines are expected to be restarted after the crackers are fully back to operations.

A Singaporean trader noted, “Lotte Titan’s crackers and all plants are shut for now. A small-scale fire emerged at one of the crackers due to water supply cut and the cracker is likely to remain shut for 2 to 3 weeks after the incident.”

A Malaysian converter stated, “Supply from Lotte Titan is disrupted given the water supply issue. So far, we heard that only PP line is affected, which will last at least a month.”

Another Malaysian converter also mentioned that the PP line will most likely be back by the first week of May.
