CP Chem shuts Pasadena HDPE plant

July 12/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Chevron Phillips Chemical (CP Chem) has taken off-stream its high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant at Pasadena in Texas, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in the US informed that the company has halted operations at the plant on July 7, 2019 owing mechanical glitch. The exact duration of the unplanned outage could not be ascertained.

Located at Pasadena, Texas in the US, the PE plant has a HDPE production capacity of 930,000 mt/year.

As MRC reported previously, in June 2017, Chevron Phillips Chemical successfully completed a low viscosity polyalphaolefins (PAO) capacity expansion at its Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas. The 20% capacity expansion enables the company to meet the increasing demand for lubricants in automotive and industrial applications. Chevron Phillips Chemical develops and produces PAOs, marketed under the brand name Synfluid PAO, which are used for a variety of applications including engine oils, gear oils and greases.

Headquartered in San Ramon, California, Chevron Corporation is the the second-largest integrated energy company in the United States and among the largest corporations in the world. Chevron is involved in upstream activities including exploration and production, downstream activities including refining, marketing and transportation, and advanced energy technology. Chevron is also invested in power generation and gasification processes.

Phillips 66 is a diversified energy manufacturing and logistics company with a portfolio of integrated businesses: Midstream, Chemicals, Refining, and Marketing and Specialties.
