EQUATE ethylene glycol unit restart delayed to mid-November

SALMIYA, KUWAIT: EQUATE Petrochemical Company said that its ethylene glycol (EG) unit is estimated to be back online mid-November 2012. In mid July a part of the company’s manufacturing unit was affected by a fire and hence the plant was taken offline. “This was a change in schedule from what was issued on August 2nd, 2012, which had stipulated that the 550,000 MTA EG unit will be back online within approximately six weeks from the fire that took place on July 31st, 2012,” informed an EQUATE official.

The official added, “EQUATE is the only entity authorized to issue statements regarding this matter and all other issues relevant to its operations.”

Established in 1995, EQUATE is an international joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), Boubyan Petrochemical Company (BPC) and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company (QPIC).
