DuPont’s Orange olefins unit goes down for turnaround
HOUSTON, April 21, 2017 (PCW) – DuPont took down its 1.5 billion lbs/yr Orange olefins unit in Texas late Thursday.
The unit is expected to be down for about 22 days. It constitutes 2.37% of US Gulf ethylene production capacity and can consume 40,000 b/d of ethane. It had been running continuously since early February.
Spot April ethylene was last assessed at 29.875 cpp on Thursday, up 0.375 cpp from the prior day. Apr prices looked fairly steady on Friday morning. -- Samantha Hartke
