Lyondell Basell Industries refinery had minor problems from storm

September 19/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Lyondell Basell Industriesí 263,776 barrel-per-day Houston refinery had a minor upset in steam supply that was corrected quickly and not repeated, said Hydrocarbonprocessng.

Refineries in the Houston area suffered only minor problems in the first night of Tropical Storm Imeldaís passage across the southeast Texas, sources familiar with plant operations.

As MRC informed earlier, in April 2019, LyondellBasellís Bayport Complex in Pasadena, Texas, commemorated 50 years of operation at its propylene oxide plant and provided an update on their role in the companyís most significant capital project to date, the construction of the largest propylene oxide (PO), tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA) plant in the world.

As MRC wrote previously, in August 2016, LyondellBasell made the final investment decision to build a high density polyethylene (HDPE) plant on the US Gulf Coast. The plant will have an annual capacity of 1.1 billion pounds (500,000 metric tons) and will be the first commercial plant to employ LyondellBasell's new proprietary Hyperzone PE technology. The start-up of the new plant is scheduled for 2019.

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. Meanwhile, 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.
