According to sources close to the company, some PTA and PX producers in Asia delayed the restart or shutdown dates of their plants.

Accordingly, China’s Hengli delayed the restart date of its 2.2 million tons/year No 1 PTA plant in Dalian for about 20 days. The company shut its plant on June 23 and was initially planning to restart it in early July.

South Korea’s SK Global Chemical also postponed the restart date of its 400,000 tons/year PX plant in Ulsan, which was previously planned to resume operations at the end of June. However, the exact restart date is not yet known.

Meanwhile, India’s Materials Chemical and Performance Intermediaries (MCPI) delayed the shutdown date of one of its PTA plants in Haldia to the end of August. The company’s No 1 line has 470,000 tons/year of capacity while the No 2 line has 800,000 tons/year capacity.
