According to market sources, ExxonMobil Chemical shut its olefin complex in Baytown, Texas due to maintenance, following a fire which broke out on January 20 because of a mechanical failure.

Maintenance at the plant may last one or two weeks, sources said.

The company’s complex in Baytown, Texas, which is the largest oil refinery and petrochemical facility in the US, has a production capacity of 1.18 million tons/year of ethylene and 800,000 tons/year of propylene. It can also process 584,000 barrels/day of crude oil.

ExxonMobil has also started a planned maintenance shutdown at its 988,000 tons/year cracker in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It is expected to last for a month, according to sources.
