Southeast Asian producer PTT Global Chemical (PTTGC) has told customers of issues with its LDPE production which will affect business.

“Currently our LDPE production plant is encountering the incident that will temporarily affect our business transactions. We would like to reaffirm that we are trying our best to resume normal operations as soon as possible,” the producer said in a note to customers.

The 345,000 tons/year LDPE plant is expected to be restarted in April, market sources said.

Meanwhile, PTTGC is expected to restart a HDPE line on March 19, after a maintenance shutdown from late January. Its other three HDPE lines had continued operating during the period.

Located in Map Ta Phut - some 145km south of Thailand’s capital Bangkok - the company’s HDPE plant comprises four production lines with a combined capacity of 330,000 tons/year.
