Restart of ChevronPhillips Chemicals’ ethylene production at its olefins complex in Sweeny, Texas, is underway. The complex was shut following a power and steam outage overnight, as per Platts. It is unclear how many crackers were in restart mode.
CP Chem operates three crackers in Sweeny, with a combined ethylene capacity of more than 4 billion lb/year (1.8 mln tpa). The outages also affected CP Chem's fractionator operations in Sweeny.
