Huntsman’s Port Neches cracker, downstream units restarting
HOUSTON, November 6, 2017 (PCW) – Huntsman’s 400 million lbs/yr steam cracker in Port Neches and associated ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol units began the restart process late last Thursday following planned maintenance at the site.
The turnaround began shortly after Hurricane Harvey in late Aug. Some 75 million lbs were lost during the maintenance, according to PetroChem Wire estimates. The cracker can consume about 10,000 b/d of ethane.
The facility can produce 1.25 billion lbs/yr or EO and 800 million lbs/yr of EG. -- Samantha Hartke
