Williams begins restart at Geismar olefins unit
HOUSTON, April 17, 2017 (PCW) – Williams has begun restarting its olefins unit at Geismar, Louisiana, that shut Mar 12 following a power outage. The unit is expected to produce on-spec ethylene during the next few days.
The olefins plant has an annual ethylene capacity of 2.06 billion lbs/yr and it consumes 55,000 b/d of ethane. It represents 11.72% of Louisiana's ethylene production and 3.24% of US Gulf region ethylene capacity. -- Kathy Hall
