Indorama to begin start-up operations at Louisiana olefins unit
HOUSTON, November 15, 2018 (PCW) -- Indorama has advised that it is set to begin initial start-up operations at its olefins unit in Lake Charles, LA over the next several weeks. The company will begin testing systems and equipment during the week of Nov 18.
The plant, which will be able to crack ethane and propane, will have the capacity to produce approximately 950 million lbs/yr of ethylene and 66 million lbs/yr of propylene.
Indorama purchased the plant in 2015. It had been idled in 2001 by Equistar. At the time of the purchase, Indorama had estimated that it could bring the unit online by the end of 2017. -- Kathy Hall
