HOUSTON (ICIS)--Power has been restored to BP’s paraxylene (PX) facility in Decatur, Alabama, the company said on Monday.
The plant ceased production following a storm-related power outage at the site on 28 April. There was no damage to the plant itself.
The Decatur plant has a PX capacity of 1.1m tonnes/year, according to ICIS plants and projects.
BP did not declare force majeure (FM) on PX or downstream purified terephthalic acid (PTA) supply as a result of the outage.
Other major US PX producers include Chevron Phillips Chemical, Flint Hills Resources and ExxonMobil Chemical.
