HOUSTON (ICIS)--BASF/Total Petrochemicals LLC’s Port Arthur olefins complex in Texas has resumed on-spec production, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.

The spokesperson said the site experienced an operational upset on 19 May, causing off-spec material to be produced and sent to the flare.

As of Tuesday, on-spec production had been resumed at the site, which has an ethylene capacity of 934,000 tonnes/year.
