According to a statement on Turkey’s Public Disclosure Platform (KAP), Turkey’s Petkim restarted its cracker in Aliaga, İzmir.

The Aliaga cracker, which was shut for an expansion and modernization project, had been offline since late July. The cracker was expected to be offline for around 105 days, but the company was unable to start it at the planned time.

With the expansion project, the company increased its ethylene capacity by 13% from 520,000 tons/year to 587,000 tons/year.

Although the producer has already resumed production at its downstream units, players report varying supply levels. Some players have stated that they are struggling to obtain material, especially PP, from the producer while others have reported that they can easily procure LLDE and LLDE-t grades from Petkim.
