This represented the first decrease for propylene inventory after steadily increasing for the past three weeks.

The lowest level of 2019 was reached one month ago when stocks fell to 3.885 million barrels the week ended August 9.

Non-fuel-use propylene stocks were down 101,000 barrels from a week earlier, though still up by 1.255 million barrels from the same time last year. The decrease came alongside slightly higher refinery utilization rates of 95.1%, up 0.3% week on week.

A source attributed the decline in propylene stock to propane dehydrogenation issues. Dow is expected to have a turnaround at its Freeport, Texas, PDH unit in early September. The company would not confirm any turnaround, but sources say the PDH unit is expected to be down for 30-60 days.
