Maintenance shutdown at CPC’s No. 4 naphtha cracker in Kaohsiung
Taiwan's state oil refiner CPC Corp. has shut its No. 4 naphtha cracker in Kaohsiung for maintenance for a week. The week long shutdown will coincide with the stoppage of a local electricity network owned by the island's monopoly power grid operator. CPC's customers in the area have also been impacted and have been forced to shutdown their plants.
