Market players in the US reported that LyondellBasell has delayed the restart of its cracker at Corpus Christi, Texas which includes an expansion of its cracker capacity.

The cracker with a capacity of 1.7 billion lbs/year (771,000 tons/year) was shut in the middle of April for a 4-month maintenance. It was expected to restart in the middle of August, but players now report that the restart is delayed again until early November.

The expansion project will add 363,000 tons/year of new capacity. It was estimated to cost around $600 million.
