ChevronPhillips Chemical resumes ethylene production at Texas complex

ChevronPhillips Chemical said that it is restarting ethylene production at its olefins complex in Sweeny, Texas, US, following a power and steam outage.

The company operates three crackers in Sweeny, with an integrated ethylene capacity of around 1.8 million tons a year.

The outage also disturbed ChevronPhillips Chemical's fractionator operations in Sweeny.
