Thai IRPC Pcl to shut deep catalytic cracking unit at efinery for 10-15 days in September-October

10-Aug-12
Thailand's IRPC Pcl will shut a deep catalytic cracking unit at its215,000 barrels per day (bpd) refinery for 10-15 days in lateSeptember or early October, as per Reuters. The cracker is used to produce propylene and ethylene which are used as feedstock for petrochemical derivative units. A shutdown was initially planned from July 20 to Aug. 7, but was postponed to help avert supply shortages after a fire at Thailand's Bangchak Petroleum Pcl refinery forced it to shut a 80,000 bpd crude distillation unit (CDU).The exact dates for IRPC's refinery maintenance will depend on when Bangchak is able to resume operations at the CDU, which is expected to be replaced by October. IRPC last had a major shutdown Q4-2011.
