SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Iran’s PARS Petrochemical has resumed normal operations at its 600,000 tonne/year styrene monomer (SM) facility in Asaluyeh following an unplanned shutdown, a company source said on Tuesday.

The SM plant was taken off line on 14 March this year because of technical issues, prompting a declaration of force majeure on its supplies.

“The plant is currently running at around 75%," the source said.

The technical difficulties were subsequently resolved and the unit was restarted in late March, the source added.

Pars Petrochemical is a unit of state-owned National Petrochemical Corp (NPC).
