HOUSTON (ICIS)--The Flint Hills Resources (FHR) light olefins unit (LOU) at Port Arthur, Texas, may start up during the weekend of 30-31 July, market sources said on Thursday.
One source said the unit might remain down through the weekend, but another understood that a restart was planned for the weekend, with full operating rates possible by Monday.
US-based FHR’s LOU shut down over the weekend of 23-24 July because of steam loss from a third-party supplier, according to a filing with state regulators on Monday.
The third-party supplier in question was Motiva, one source said.
A spokesperson for FHR could not be reached for comment.
