HOUSTON (ICIS)—US producer Flint Hills Resources has restarted its Port Arthur cracker in Texas, sources said on Monday.
The unit was taken off line on 1 March because of an unexpected shutdown of the ethylene and propylene refrigeration compressor at the facility’s light olefins unit (LOU), according to a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
The company made an additional filing later that week, saying an unexpected shutdown in the cracked-gas compressor in the LOU on 4 March resulted in emissions of several hydrocarbons.
Attempts to reach the company for confirmation of the restart were unsuccessful.
