LYONDELL'S HOUSTON REFINERY FCCU OUTPUT CUT BECAUSE OF CHEMICAL PLANT UPSET
Production on the gasoline-producing fluidic catalytic cracking unit (FCCU) was cut back about 15% at Lyondell Basell Industries’ 263,776-barrel-per-day (bpd) Houston refinery, sources familiar with plant operations said on Tuesday. The 110,000-bpd FCCU reduced production first because of maintenance and then due to a malfunction at Lyondell’s Channelview, Texas chemical complex, the sources said.
Lyondell spokeswoman Patricia Shieh-Lance declined to comment. The Channelview complex began performing maintenance on Saturday, reducing its capacity to receive petrochemicals produced along with gasoline by the FCCU, the sources said.
