According to Reuters, Saudi Arabia’s Sadara Chemical will shut its 1.5 million tons/year mixed-feed cracker in Jubail for a scheduled maintenance. The company, which is a joint venture between Dow and Saudi Aramco, started up the cracker in August, 2016.

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.
