HOUSTON (ICIS)--US producer Chevron Phillips Chemical restarted its Port Arthur cracker in Texas on Wednesday, sources said on Friday.
The cracker had been down since 8 April for planned maintenance that was scheduled to last for 60 days, sources said.
A company spokesperson declined to comment, citing company policy.
The company also reported a unit upset and flaring at the cracker on 10 July because of an interruption of steam from an off-site provider, according to a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
According to the filing, the steam was restored and the unit was stabilised on the same day.
