Turkey’s Petkim is planning to restart their steam cracker in Aliaga, Izmir in the near future, according to a source close to the company. The source stated that the company will publish a statement regarding the restart on Turkey’s Public Disclosure Platform (KAP) soon.

The Aliaga cracker has been offline since late July, when it was shut for an expansion and modernization project. Once the project is completed, the cracker’s ethylene capacity is expected to increase by 13% to 587,000 tons/year from 520,000 tons/year.

Petkim has already resumed operations at their downstream units including their PP, PE and PVC facilities. The company is reportedly operating some of their units at almost full capacities while they have already started to supply their customers, the source claims.
