DuPont Co. to restart a cogeneration plant and ethylene unit

April 27/2011

(Bloomberg) -- DuPont Co. is restarting a cogeneration plant and ethylene unit after a possible lightning strike caused a steam loss at the Sabine River Works chemical complex in Orange, Texas, said Aaron Woods, a company spokesman.

They are in the process of getting the cogen plant restarted, Woods, based in Houston, said in a telephone interview. The ethylene plant had to be shut because of the loss of steam from the cogeneration plant, he said. There was no damage to the steam cracker.

The cracker, splits oil products like naphtha and liquefied petroleum gases through pressure and heat. Outages can increase prices for ethylene and propylene as companies turn to spot markets to help them meet supply contracts.
