According to market sources, two producers shut their PE plants in China. Reportedly, China’s Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical shut its HDPE plant in Shanghai for maintenance on April 18. The expected restart date is unclear.

The HDPE plant has a production capacity of 250,000 tons/year while the company also has a 200,000 tons/year LDPE plant at the same site.

Meanwhile, China’s Zhongyuan Petrochemical, a joint venture between Sinopec Group and the Henan provincial government, unexpectedly shut its 260,000 tons/year LLDPE unit on April 17. The reason behind the outage and the expected restart date of the unit are unknown.
