Refinery FCCU output cut because of chemical plant upset

August 16/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Production on the gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) was cut back about 15% at Lyondell Basell Industries 263,776-barrel-per-day (bpd) Houston refinery, sources familiar with plant operations said, as per Reuters.

The 110,000-bpd FCCU reduced production first because of maintenance and then due to a malfunction at Lyondells Channelview, Texas chemical complex, the sources said.

Lyondell spokeswoman Patricia Shieh-Lance declined to comment.

The Channelview complex began performing maintenance on Saturday, reducing its capacity to receive petrochemicals produced along with gasoline by the FCCU, the sources said.

As MRC informed earlier, LyondellBasell has announced that Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals Co. Ltd., (Shandong Chambroad), has selected the LyondellBasell Hostalen "Advance Cascade Process" (Hostalen ACP) technology.
