Dow’s SCO-2 olefins unit in St Charles fully restarts
HOUSTON, November 20, 2017 (PCW) -– Dow’s SCO-2 olefins unit at St Charles fully restarted last Friday after going down for a planned turnaround – alongside the 1.3 billion lbs/yr SCO-1 unit – in late September.
SCO-2 has an ethylene production capacity of 800 million lbs/yr and can consume 15,000 b/d of ethane, 5,000 b/d of propane and 5,000 b/d of normal butane, according to PetroChem Wire estimates. As of last Friday, 133 million lbs/yr of ethylene production was lost as a result of SCO-2’s downtime. -- Samantha Hartke
