HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Flint Hills Resources (FHR) has initiated a new restart at its Port Arthur olefins plant in Texas, but the company on Monday did not confirm when the unit would be fully operational.
Flint Hills had originally restarted the 621,000 tonne/year unit on 12 January. However, one week later the company shut down the unit due to a leak on the exterior of the olefins unit quench tower.
The Port Arthur plant was idled in early December due to weak market conditions.
