Texas Petrochemicals, Inc's Port Neches facility has safely resumed its operations post Hurrican Humberto. All its units are successfully on line following a short outage as a result of Hurricane Humberto's landfall in southeast Texas. There was minimal damage sustained and plant security and environmental systems remained intact throughout the duration of the shutdown. Severe weather resulted in a partial loss of power at the facility that resulted in a plant shutdown.
TPC's Houston and Baytown facilities were not impacted by the storm and have maintained normal operations.
