Shell resumed crude unit in Deer Park

April 06/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc restarted the small crude distillation unit (CDU) on Friday at its 318,000-bpd joint-venture Deer Park, Texas, refinery, said sources familiar with plant operations, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The 70,000-bpd DU-1 CDU was shut on Feb 14 by a pump seal failure, the sources said. All other units were shut the following day by severe cold weather.

DU-1 is the last unit shut in February to restart at the refinery.

As per MRC, Royal Dutch Shell reported an outage at its olefins plant in Deer Park, Texas, on 5 January, 2021. The plant flared for 16 hours last Tuesday following unspecified process upset. Maximum steam cracker operating rate in Texas falls to 89%.

As per MRC, Russia's output of chemical products rose in February 2021 by 5.3% year on year. Thus, production of basic chemicals increased year on year by 7.5% in the first two months of 2021. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, mineral fertilizers accounted for the greatest increase in the January-February output. Production of benzene dropped to 113,000 tonnes in February 2021, compared to 120,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of this product reached 241,000 tonnes over the stated period, down by 7.5% year on year.
