HOUSTON, June 25, 2017 (PCW) – Formosa’s Point Comfort Complex shut down after a power failure late Saturday, according to several TCEQ filings.

The units affected include the 1.5 billion lbs/yr Olefins I and 1.8 billion lbs/yr Olefins II, two HDPE, one LLDPE, two PP, one ethylene glycol and one chlor-alkali unit.

The complex has a total HDPE production capacity of 1.38 billion lbs/yr of HDPE, 530 million lbs/yr of LLDPE, 1.5 billion lbs/yr of PP and 840 million lbs/yr of EG. The chlor-alkali unit can produce 2 billion lbs/yr of chlorine and 2.2 billion lbs/yr of caustic soda.
