HOUSTON, April 5, 2016 (PCW) -- Eastman's HCC-3A olefins unit at Longview, Texas, has returned to service. The unit shut Mar 30 following a propylene refrigeration compressor trip and remained shut for minor maintenance.
The unit's ethylene capacity is 310 million pounds per year, or about 800,000 pounds per day, and represents less than 1% of Texas ethylene capacity. The unit is one of three olefins units at the Longview site.
