Equistar’s Corpus Christi olefins unit to begin turnaround next week
HOUSTON, April 13, 2016 (PCW) –- Equistar’s Corpus Christi olefins unit is set to begin its planned turnaround Monday or Tuesday.
The 1.7 billion lb/yr plant has been operating normally since February 19, 2010. It represents about 3.2% of total US Gulf Coast operating capacity. The outage could result in a demand loss of as much as 25,000 b/d of ethane, 10,000 b/d of propane, 5,000 b/d of normal butane and 10,000 b/d of natural gasoline.
A TCEQ filing this week stated the turnaround would begin sometime this week.
