Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LP will pay a fine of more than $400,000 for alleged violations at the firm's petrochemicals plant in Baytown, Texas.
Chevron Phillips based in The Woodlands was assessed the $422,320 fine for excess emissions from a flare and improper maintenance of monitoring equipment at the site, which is known as the Cedar Bayou plant. The fine was issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
A spokeswoman with the Austin, Texas-based TCEQ said Chevron Phillips did not appeal the fine. Company officials could not be reached for comment.
The firm makes polyethylene, ethylene, propylene and other petrochemical products at the site, which ranks as the largest of its 34 facilities.
