South Korea’s Hyundai Petrochemical and S-OIL are planning to shut their PX plants in the upcoming period, according to a source close to the companies. Hyundai Petrochemical is expected to shut its plant at the end of April for a 40-45 days turnaround while S-OIL will shut its 1 million tons/year plant at the beginning of March for two months.

Sources also stated that South Korea’s Samsung will also shut its PX plant in July 2015 for a planned maintenance which is expected to last around two months. The plant is able to produce 1 million tons/year of PX.
