Sadara completes cracker repairs ahead of schedule21 Apr 2021 / ChemCourier. Polyolefins Market Weekly / production

Saudi Arabia’s Sadara Chemical Company has restarted the Jubail-based naphtha cracker with the annual ethylene and propylene capacity of 1.5 million t and 400,000 t, respectively, after an emergency caused by compressor malfunction.

Sadara has also put the 340,000-tpy LDPE unit, the 600,000-tpy HDPE/LLDPE swing line and the 400,000-tpy PP unit back into service. The maintenance was planned to last one month, but the company has resolved issues faster than expected and is taking measures to reduce financial losses.
