Unipetrol Says Steam Cracker Shut for 10-day Maintenance

Posted by July 7, 2017

Czech downstream oil group Unipetrol said on Friday it had shut down the steam cracker at its Litvinov refinery on Thursday afternoon due to maintenance activities.
 
"The controlled shutdown is scheduled for 10 days after which the unit will be put back into operation," it said in a news release.
 
"There will be ethylene supply reductions to Spolana in Neratovice and to polyethylene units in Litvínov."
 
The steam cracker with 544,000 tonne annual capacity has been back in operation since October last year following reconstruction after a fire in 2015.
