CP Chem’s Cedar Bayou hits restart snag, on-spec production at end Nov
HOUSTON, November 17, 2016 (PCW) – Chevron Phillips Chemical’s 1.84 billion lbs/yr Cedar Bayou olefins plant is continuing with its restart processes after a compressor trip had reportedly snagged the process earlier in the week.. On-spec production is expected at the end of the month.
Earlier this month, a TCEQ filing reported that the plant would be in start-up mode through November 11. The plant – which represents 2.91% of US ethylene production capacity -- went down for planned maintenance on Sep 13. It can consume 25,000 b/d of ethane, 20,000 b/d of propane and 10,000 b/d of normal butane, as per PetroChem Wire estimates. -- Samantha Hartke.
