HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Flint Hills Resources (FHR) will lay off another 46 workers from its Odessa complex in Texas on 1 April, the Texas Workforce Commission said on Monday.

The layoffs will add to nearly 200 terminations that were already expected to take place in the first quarter, according to notices sent by the company to state regulators.

FHR plans to permanently decommission the site by the end of June. The shutdown process began on 3 January.

FHR did not respond to a request for comment on Monday, but it previously said the closure would result in about 450 job losses.

The company has 348,000 tonnes/year of ethylene capacity in Odessa.

FHR also produces polypropylene (PP), low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) at the site.
