Citgo Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery restarts large FCC

July 07/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Citgo Petroleum Corp restarted the large gasoline-producing fluid catalytic cracker at its 167,500-barrel-per-day (bpd) Corpus Christi, Texas, refinery, reported Reuters with reference to sources familiar with plant operations.

Citgo did not reply to a request for comment.

The 69,000-bpd FCC was knocked out of production early on Wednesday, the sources said, by a pump outage. The pump was repaired and the unit restarted.

As informed before, in May 2019, Citgo restarted larger reformer at its US Corpus Christi 52,000 bbl/day refinery with capacity 225,000 benzene; 180,000 toluene tonnes/year.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market was 457,930 tonnes in January-May 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Deliveris of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.
