PRAGUE, Oct 19 (Reuters) - Czech refiner Unipetrol has restarted production of the steam cracker unit at its Litvinov plant after a fire took it offline in August 2015, it said on Wednesday.
Unipetrol said seven of 10 steam cracker heaters were operating and that a return to normal production was expected later this month.
It reiterated total costs for repairs amounted to 4.1 billion crowns ($167.00 million) and lost profit reached 6.6 billion crowns. Unipetrol expects to recover both amounts from insurance. ($1 = 24.5510 Czech crowns) (Reporting by Jason Hovet, editing by Louise Heavens)
