Pump serving ethylene unit at Chevron Phillips' Sweeny plant shuts unexpectedly

A pump serving ethylene unit No. 22 at Chevron Phillips Chemical's Sweeny, Texas plant has shut unexpectedly, according to a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, as reported by Argusmedia. The outage caused pressure build up in an ethylene surge drum that subsequently vented to the atmosphere, releasing ethylene and propylene, among other materials. The pump was returned to service.
