Dow’s TX-7 olefins unit has ‘process upset’: TCEQ filing
HOUSTON, February 22, 2018 (PCW) – Dow’s TX-7 olefins unit in Freeport had a process upset late Tuesday, according to a TCEQ filing.
“The cause of the emission event is a process upset resulting in a transmitter tube leak with minimal emissions to atmosphere, flaring to FS-1, and emissions from one furnace,” the filing stated.
The 1.61 billion lbs/yr unit was last offline during Hurricane Harvey. It can consume 35,000 b/d of ethane and 10,000 b/d of propane, according to PetroChem Wire estimates.
