Malaysia's Petronas Chemicals revealed that its aromatic plant has stopped its operations following an incident of fire in its naptha hydrotreater unit.

The fire broke out late at night on December 24 at the company's petrochemical complex in the north-eastern state of Terengganu, which is known for oil production in Malaysia.

There were no reports of casualties from the aromatic plant, which also manufactured ethylene and polyethylene. The fire was controlled within a short span of time.

Operations at the aromatic plant have been stopped temporarily as a safety measure. However, the operations at other units of the company's petrochemical complex have not been affected. An investigation into the cause of fire is still in progress. The investigation will also review the degree of damage caused by the incident of fire.
