According to market players, Malaysia’s Petronas Chemical Group Berhad unexpectedly shut its cracker with 600,000 tons/year of ethylene production capacity on August 13 due to technical issues.

The company’s 255,000 tons/year LDPE line was also shut on the same day in the face of insufficient ethylene supplies.

Both the cracker and the LDPE line are expected to resume operations in 9 days.
