US petrochemical producer Flint Hills Resources shut down its propane dehydrogenation plant in Houston, multiple market sources, including one familiar with company operations, said Monday.

Petrotahlil:A company representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Market sources said the outage would take about a week to address compressor issues.

The 658,000 mt/year plant is one of the three PDH units in the US, and it accounts for about 30% of the total US PDH capacity.

Spot polymer-grade propylene was last assessed Monday at 37.25 cents/lb FD USG for July delivery and at 37.50 cents/lb FD USG for August. US spot refinery-grade product was assessed at 24 cents/lb delivered.

The shutdown appeared to have little impact on the market Monday.
