HOUSTON (ICIS)--Petrologistics said on Wednesday that its propylene (C3) plant in Texas was off line because of a lack of nitrogen supply.

Nitrogen supply was interrupted because of a ruptured pipeline header, the company said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).    

Petrologistics did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The company has 544,000 tonnes/year of capacity at a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Houston.
