According to market sources, Thailand’s PTT Global Company brought forward the duration of planned maintenance and expansion works at its No. 2 aromatics complex at Rayong to July 28 following an unexpected technical problem.

Initially, the plant had been expected to shut in September for around 40-45 days, however, the company reportedly decided to include their annual maintenance shutdown and debottlenecking plans along with repair works following the unplanned shutdown on July 28. The plant is now expected to remain offline for around 75 days.

The plant is currently able to produce 655,000 tons/year of PX and 355,000 tons/year of benzene. Following the debottlenecking, the plant’s PX capacity is reportedly expected to increase by 115,000 tons/year while its benzene capacity will rise by 35,000 tons/year.
