The No. 3 unit with capacity to produce 230,000 tpa of ethylene and 115,000 tpa of propylene, was taken offline at the end of March for a 30-35 day maintenance. Its No. 4 unit with capacity to produce 380,000 tpa of ethylene and 193,000 tpa of propylene, is scheduled for a month-long turnaround around end-December.
