Phillips 66 says Bayway, NJ refinery hit by power outage

July 14/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) --  Phillips 66 said its 258,500 barrel-per-day Bayway refinery in Linden, New Jersey experienced a power outage that caused a shut down, reported Reuters.

"All refinery systems functioned as designed... Refinery personnel are working diligently to return to normal," the company said in an emailed response.

As MRC informed earlier, 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 595,170 tonnes in the first five month of 2020, up by 10% year on year. Deliveries of all ethylene polymers, except for linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), rose partially because of an increase in capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim. At the same time, 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.
