Houston — Enterprise Products Partners' Mont Belvieu propane dehydrogenation unit in Texas will restart from planned maintenance in the first week of December, a source familiar with company operations told S&P Global Platts Friday.
The company was not immediately available for comment.
The PDH unit went offline for maintenance on November 13. That day, the company said in a filing with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that the RAC "B" turbine shut down, which resulted in flaring. The flaring was estimated to last 72 hours.
The unit has a capacity of 750,000 mt/year, according to Platts data.
A second source said he expects spot polymer-grade propylene prices to remain above 30 cents/lb until the PDH unit restarts.
