Valero Port Arthur, Texas refinery restarts large crude unit

September 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Valero Energy Corp has restarted the large crude distillation unit (CDU) at its 335,000-bpd Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, reported Reuters with reference to sources familiar with plant operations.

The 268,000-bpd CDU was shut with all other units at the refinery on Aug. 25 because of the threat from Hurricane Laura, the sources said.

As MRC reported earlier, in June 2020, Valero Energy Corps Memphis, Tennessee, crude oil refinery was operating at two-thirds of its 180,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) capacity because of low demand in the COVID-19 pandemic. The Memphis refinery cut production by as much as 50% in early April and has been raising production gradually since then.

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

According to MRC's DataScope report, PE imports to Russia dropped in January-June 2020 by 7% year on year to 328,000 tonnes. High density polyethylene (HDPE) accounted for the main decrease in imports. At the same time, PP imports into Russia rose in the first six months of 2020 by 21% year on year to 105,300 tonnes. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.
