Flint Hills Resources' Port Arthur olefins unit returns to service
HOUSTON, April 4, 2016 (PCW) -- Flint Hills Resources' olefins unit at Port Arthur, Texas, has returned to service. The plant shut Mar 29 following a process leak, the company said in a filing to Texas regulators.
Prior to this most recent outage, the plant had been shut for several days in late January following a loss of boiler feed water supply. The plant has the capacity to produce about 3.7 million pounds of ethylene per day, and represents 3.09% of Texas ethylene production.
Spot ethylene prices were steady Monday morning, with Apr trading flat to Friday's level of 28.75 cpp. -- Kathy Hall
