The No. 5 naphtha cracker of Taiwan's state-owned CPC Corporation is operating at 85-90 percent of its capacity.

The cracker in Kaohsiung was restarted after the completion of the scheduled maintenance work. It has a capacity to produce 500,000 tons per year (tpy) of ethylene and was shut for maintenance on August 10 this year.

CPC Corp has now completed its planned maintenance at two of its three naphtha crackers - the No. 5 cracker located in Kaohsiung and the No.3 and No. 4 crackers located in Lin Yuan.

The No. 3 and No. 4 naphtha cracking units have a capacity to produce 230,000 tpy and 380,000 tpy of ethylene, respectively.

The maintenance activity at the No. 3 naphtha cracker began at the end of March 2011 and was completed in about 30-35 days time. The maintenance at the No. 4 cracker is scheduled to begin in end-December.
