Thai SCG cuts HDPE production rate by 50%

A source from Thai Siam Cement Group (SCG) reported that the producer cut its HDPE production rate by around 50% due to expiration of a feedstock ethylene supply contract with Thai PTT.

“SCG is now purchasing ethylene from the spot market while its own cracker production capacity isn’t big enough to cover their needs. That’s why the producer had to lower run rates at its HDPE plant,” stated the source.

Meanwhile, the producer resumed operations at its PP and LLDPE film plants last week after an emergency shutdown on January 9.
