SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Oman Polypropylene has achieved 100% production after restarting its polypropylene (PP) plant in Sohar over the weekend following a six-day unscheduled shutdown, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The 340,000 tonne/year plant was taken off line "due to technical problems", the source said.

Oman Polypropylene officials were not available for comment.

Oman Oil owns a 40% stake in the PP maker, while LG International, Gulf Investment and International Petroleum Investment each hold a 20% stake in Oman Polypropylene.
