(Arabian Oil and Gas) -- Oman Polypropylene Company has shut down its polypropylene plant located in its facility in Sohar, Oman, for two weeks, according to a source close to the company. A shortage of propylene feedstock caused the company to halt production. The plant was expected to resume its operation in mid-December.
The polypropylene plant had also reduced its operational rate in early November as the refinery at Al Fahl Port was closed for maintenance.
The polypropylene maker is 40% owned by Oman Oil. LG International, Gulf Investment and International Petroleum Investment each hold a 20% share in OPP.
