NEW CONSTRUCTION ERA REFLECTED IN EAST TEXAS LPG PIPELINE
T. J. Mittler Texas Eastman Co. Longview, Tex. Installation of 240 miles of 6, 10, and 12-in. LPG pipelines from Mont Belvieu to Tyler, Tex., has provided greater feedstock-supply flexibility to Texas Eastman Co.'s petrochemical plant in Longview, Tex. The project, which took place over 18 months, included tie-ins with metering at four Mont Belvieu suppliers. The new 10 and 12-in. pipelines now transport propane while the new and existing parts of a 6-in. pipeline transport propylene.
