Lyondell Houston returns to normal after technical upset

June 22/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Operations returned to normal at LyondellBasell Industries 263,776 barrel-per-day (bpd) Houston refinery following an upset in a waste gas system, said sources familiar with plant operations, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The system takes waste gases from production units and uses them to power operations at the refinery, the sources said.

As per MRC, LyondellBasell (LBI), the world's largest producer of polyolefins, has announced force majeure for the supply of linear polyethylene (LLDPE) from its La Porte, TX plant due to an equipment malfunction at the Q1 reactor. According to the letter, the company is currently in the process of assessing the impact of this event on the production process of this enterprise with a capacity of 272,000 tonnes of LLDPE per year.

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.

LyondellBasell is one of the world's largest polypropylene producers, a leading supplier of polyethylene and catalysts, and a developer of polyethylene and polypropylene technologies. The company manufactures products at 58 production sites in 18 countries around the world. In addition, LyondellBasell is the developer of the Spheripol process, which is the basis for polypropylene production at Omsk Poliom and Nizhnekamskneftekhim.
