HOUSTON (ICIS)--Dow Chemical on Wednesday reported flaring from its Freeport complex in Texas, citing a gas compressor trip at the site.
Freeport 7, which has 612,000 tonnes/year of capacity, was one of the sources of the emissions, Dow said.
Market sources said the unit resumed operations within a day.
A Dow spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
The same cracker was briefly down in mid-September because of a compressor shutdown.
