According to market sources, Spain’s Repsol started a scheduled maintenance at its Puertollano petrochemicals complex in Ciudad Real, Spain in early February. The maintenance is expected to last until the end of March. The complex houses a 120,000 tons/year LDPE plant, a 120,000 tons/year PP plant and a 32,000 tons/year butadiene plant and maintenance is expected to last until the end of March.

Previously, the company announced that they would close their 105,000 tons/year HDPE plant due to the unit’s lack of profitability and reduce their steam cracker capacity from the current 250,000 tons/year to around 100,000 tons/year. As part of the rationalization of the site, Repsol will also expand its capacity to produce high value added products such as EVA and polyols.
