HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Flint Hills Resources (FHR) has begun to shut down its Odessa olefins plant in Texas in preparation for the permanent decommissioning of the site, a company spokesperson confirmed on Monday.
Most of the olefins plant will be taken off line except for some systems needed to operate the polymer units until those are permanently shutdown, FHR said in the filing.
The company announced the decommissioning of Odessa in early November, saying it planned to focus on polymer production elsewhere.
