HOUSTON (ICIS)--ExxonMobil's Baytown olefins plant in Texas is back at normal operations, a company spokesperson said on Monday, confirming information in the market about a restart at the unit.

ExxonMobil took the Baytown 2 cracker off line on 20 October, citing a compressor shutdown in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The unit has 1m tonnes/year of capacity and uses ethane as a feedstock.

ExxonMobil has a second cracker at the site, Baytown 1, which has 1.2m tonnes/year of capacity.
