Idemitsu Kosan to shut 687,000 tpa Tokuyama cracker due to start-up problems following scheduled maintenance

Japan's Idemitsu Kosan Co is to shut the 687,000 tpa naphtha cracker at its Tokuyama plant in western Japan very recently due to an unspecified problem during the start-up process following scheduled maintenance, as per Reuters. The company had been in the process of restarting the cracker recently with plans to start producing the so-called "on-spec" products that match specifications from the beginning of November. A company spokesman did not give the exact date of the beginning of the restart or unplanned shutdown, adding there's no schedule for restart. The company had been conducting the maintenance since Sept. 9.
