HOUSTON (ICIS)--BASF TOTAL Petrochemicals on Thursday said its Port Arthur cracker in Texas was off line, the second outage at the 934,000 tonne/year cracker in more than a week.
The outage was caused by the shutdown of a major compressor on 25 September, a company spokesperson said.
The length of the shutdown was unknown at this time, the spokesperson added.
The cracker is a joint venture between BASF and Total.
