HOUSTON (ICIS)--US propylene producer PetroLogistics said it has restarted its Houston propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit on Tuesday.

In a press release, the company said it has completed repairs to the facility and that the total cost for all repairs will be less than $2.5m (€1.875m).

The facility was shut down on 8 June, a company spokesperson confirmed, as two of the plant’s eight reactors received work.

According to an earlier filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the plant was scheduled to resume production on 20 June.

The company has 544,000 tonnes/year of propylene production at the site, according to ICIS plants and projects.
