HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based Flint Hills Resources (FHR) resumed production at its Port Arthur cracker in Texas, following a shutdown caused by a disruption in steam supply, market sources said on Wednesday.
An FHR spokesperson declined to comment on the restart.
Two other US crackers in Texas were not running this week, including Huntsman's 193,000 tonne/year unit in Port Neches.
Huntsman shut down the unit last week for a two-week maintenance.
Meanwhile, Eastman on Wednesday halted production at its HCC-4 cracker in Longview to repair a valve on one of the unit's cracking furnances.
