Sources close to the company reported that Philippine Polypropylene Inc. (PPI) has extended the maintenance at its PP unit at Mariveles in Bataan province to October 15.

The company experienced an unplanned outage in mid-September due to a technical issue and had earlier planned to restart the plant last week. The unit has an initial capacity of 160,000/tons/year which could be increased 225,000 tons/year, according to the company website.

Meanwhile, another Philippines producer – JG Summit – has started maintenance at its PP and PE units at Batangas, the sources said.

The company produces 190,000 tons/year of PP and 325,000 tons/year of HDPE/LLDPE at its facilities. The plants will be offline for two months from October to the end of November.
