South Korea's Yeochun Naphtha Cracking Centre (YNCC) has delayed the resumption of its naphtha operation 3 to 5 days from its shutdown due to a power outage at the weekend. The power outage forced YNCC to shut down two of its three naphtha crackers: No. 1 with 857,000 tpa capacity, No. 2 with 550,000 tpa capacity and the No. 3 with 400,000 tpa capacity.
Almost 75,000 tonnes of naphtha will remain in inventory during the shutdown.
