Conditions Force Flaring at Local Chemical Plant

Operations at a local refinery caused some major flaring Thursday.

Plant officials at the Lyondell Chemical Plant on the 1500 block of Mckinzie Rd., near Tuloso-Midway High School, said the plant was forced to flare after some routine maintenance. Air monitoring was conducted after the flare, and no hazards were found.

The flaring procedure went on for a few hours in the afternoon.

As you might know, flaring is a relatively common safety mechanism, and is meant to head off a problem. It does not represent any sort of danger.
