According to market sources, Liaoning Baolai Petrochemical Co Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between LyondelBasell and Baolai Group is planning to conduct trial run on its new PP and PE plants by 05 August 2020, which are slightly delayed from initial expectation on 20 July 2020.

Based in Liaoning, China, the producer has two new PP plants with combined production capacity of 600,000 tons/year, a 450,000 tons/year LLDPE and a 350,000 tons/year HDPE.

A source closed to the company informed that they had tried production run for LL previously by outsourcing monomers and hence having some off-spec cargoes available for auction today, meanwhile if the start-up of upstream is smooth on 2 August 2020, then PP and PE plants will be slated to start-up from 5 August onward.
