Williams’ Geismar olefins plant down for maintenance
HOUSTON, November 30, 2016 (PCW) – Williams’ 2.06 billion lbs/yr Geismar olefins unit went down for 10-day planned maintenance on November 27.
It has been running continuously since June 2015. It constitutes 3.25% of US ethylene production capacity and consumes 55,000 b/d of ethane.
Williams is looking at either an outright sale of the facility or a tolling agreement. Company executives said recently it would likely be at the end of the first quarter of next year when a decision would be made as to a sale versus a tolling agreement. -- Samantha Hartke
