The management of the company evaluated the issue and decided to carry out repairs before re-operation.
The repairing process is expected to end in a period not exceeding 10 days, which started on 21 October, which means missed opportunity for the profitability of nearly $3.73mn based on current polypropylene prices, which will affect the expected profits in the fourth quarter of this year.
During the shutdown period, the company’s clients will be supplied from the standby reserves available in its warehouse.
Last month, Sahara Petrochemical Company declared that its subsidiary Al Waha Petrochemicals Company was affected on 12 September 2018 by a technical fault caused due to power outages, which led to the interruption of production processes in all operating units.
