Valero shut multiple units at Three Rivers, Texas, refinery after fire

June 09/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Multiple units were shut at Valero Energy Corp's 89,000 barrel-per-day (bpd) Three Rivers, Texas, refinery, reported Reuters with reference to energy industry intelligence service Wood Mackenzie's statement.

A fire was reported at the refinery on Sunday, according to notices posted by the Three Rivers Volunteer Fire Department.

As MRC wrote previously, Valero Energy Corp, the second largest US crude oil refiner, planned to operate its 14 refineries up to 89% of their combined total throughput capacity of 3.15 million barrels per day (bpd) during the second quarter of 2021.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 744,130 tonnes in the first four month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. At the same time, PP deliveries to the Russian market were 523,900 tonnes in January-April 2021, up by 55% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas shipments of PP random copolymers decreased.
