HOUSTON (ICIS)--Canada-based Agrium restarted its Borger, Texas, ammonia plant following a brief maintenance outage, according to a report from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), made available on Friday.
The 490,000 tonne/year ammonia plant went down on 2 August when a seal oil pump on a synthesis gas compressor failed, causing the plant to trip on a low steam to gas ration, the TCEQ report said.
Agrium did not respond to a request for additional information.
The event at the plant caused the emission of 5,917 lb (2,684 kg) of carbon monoxide, the TCEQ reported.
