CP Chem’s Cedar Bayou restart to resume “on or after” Nov 20: TCEQ

HOUSTON, November 21, 2016 (PCW) – The restart of Chevron Phillips Chemical’s 1.84 billion lbs/yr Cedar Bayou olefins plant will resume “on or after” Nov 20, according to a TCEQ filing.

The filing indicates startup procedures to last through Nov 30.

A compressor trip had reportedly snagged the restart process during the week of Nov 14. The plant had been expected to return to service in the first half of the month. The plant represents 2.91% of US ethylene production capacity and 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.
