Chevron Phillips to Flare Gases From Port Arthur Ethylene Unit

Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. said it plans to flare gases from an ethylene unit at its Port Arthur facility in Texas, according to a filing with state regulators.

The flaring, or release of gases into the air, will start today and last until Feb. 1, and is related to “planned maintenance activity” on a so-called acetylene converter, according to the filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Chevron Phillips Chemical is a joint venture between Chevron Corp. and ConocoPhillips. Flaring is a safety measure that prevents excessive pressure from building up in processing units that are being shut down or started up. Ethylene is used in plastics.
