Nova’s Joffre olefins unit shuts down unexpectedly
HOUSTON, July 5, 2017 (PCW) – Nova Chemicals’1.8 billion lbs/yr E-2 olefins unit at Joffre, Alberta, is shut for unscheduled minor maintenance repairs. Restart is expected early next week.
The unit had a similar shutdown in early February and was restarted in three days.
The unit represents 2.4% of North American ethylene production capacity. It can consume 40,000-42,000 b/d of ethane and as much as 9,000 b/d of propane, according to PetroChem Wire estimates. -- Samantha Hartke
