ExxonMobil Baytown refinery production unaffected by shut Houston channel

September 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Production at Exxon Mobil Corps 560,500 barrel-per-day (bpd) Baytown, Texas refinery was unaffected by a closure of the upper Houston Ship Channel because of a protest by Greenpeace USA, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The Baytown refinery is the fourth largest in the United States and Exxons largest US refinery.

As MRC wrote previously, Exxon Mobil Corp brought under control a fire that erupted on 31 July, 2019, at its Baytown, Texas, refining and chemical plant complex, injuring 37 workers, none seriously. The fire, which was put down by the companys employees, sent black smoke into the air over the complex in Baytown, a city of 75,000 which is located about 30 miles (48 km) east of Houston.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polyprolypele (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,255,800 tonnes in the first seven months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. At the same time, the estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 796,120 tonnes in January-July 2019, up by 11% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.

ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3% of the world's oil and about 2% of the world's energy.
