Phillips 66 takes NJ FCCU offline for unplanned work

February 20/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Phillips 66 took the gasoline-making FCCU at its Bayway refinery in Linden, New Jersey, offline at midnight EST last Thursday due to a leak, reported S&P Global with reference to a source familiar to refinery operations.

There was no timeline for the restart.

As MRC wrote before, US-based Phillips 66 remains open to developing another ethane cracker for its Chevron Phillips Chemical (CP Chem) joint venture, the refiner's CEO said in March 2018.

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

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,093,260 tonnes in 2019, up by 6% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. PE shipments rose from both domestic producers and foreign suppliers. The estimated PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,260,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, up by 4% year on year. Supply of almost all grades of propylene polymers increased, except for statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers).
