Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. is preparing to start an ethylene unit at the chemical plant in Port Arthur, Texas, according to a regulatory filing.
The restart of the unit, which was down for maintenance, is expected to begin today and be complete by April 27.
“The start-up time may vary subject to completion of testing of the equipment repaired during the shutdown,” The Woodlands, Texas-based company said today in the filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The company expected the maintenance to last 504 hours, according to a filing April 8.
The Port Arthur plant is 93 miles (150 kilometers) east of Houston.
