Valero begins maintenance at Corpus Christi refinery

October 16/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Valero Energy Corp. (VLO) said it began month-long maintenance work Friday at the East plant of its refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas, reported MorningStar.

"Valero will be conducting routine maintenance activities at its East Plant from 10/11 - 11/9," the refinery said in statement to the city's Community Alert line. "During this time, there will be increased vehicle traffic, lights and sounds in that area."

Valero's 293,000-barrel-a-day Corpus Christi refinery includes an East and West plant.

As MRC wrote previously, Valero Energy Corp restarted the small crude distillation unit (CDU) at its 335,000 barrel-per-day Port Arthur, Texas, refinery after repairing a valve on 25 September 2019.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,436,390 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. At the same time, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 909,260 tonnes in January-August 2019, up by 10% year on year. Shipments of PP block copolymer and homopolymer PP increased.
