SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Pars Petrochemical’s 600,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) unit in Assaluyeh, Iran, was shut on 20 September because of mechanical problems, a company source said on Thursday.

“The unit is expected to restart at the end of September, the source said.

The outage will not affect supply contracts for September, given the ample inventory. However, there may be some delay for October cargoes, the source added.
