Saudi Sadara to shut cracker on Wednesday
The company’s three polyethylene plants, which have a combined capacity of 1.1 million tons/year, will also be reportedly shut for maintenance during the same period. According to earlier reports, the commissioning of these PE plants was expected to be completed by the end of 2016 while some players were hearing PE cargoes from Sadara being pre-marketed in Southeast Asia and Turkey.
The maintenance at the cracker is expected to start on December 28, Wednesday and last for six weeks.
