Whole lotta benzene goin' on ...

Over at Equistar yesterday, the 86D2 tower overpressured during unit start-up, resulting in the proverbial shit hittin' the fan, with the fecal matter in this case comprised of benzene, toulene, volatile organic compounds and so forth, it says here.

They coulda flared it off, but you get a ration of shit when they see the flames. It's easier just to sneak a silent but deadly one out and hope nobody notices.
