SAO PAULO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Brazilian petrochemical producer Braskem SA said it expected an additional 3 billion reais ($561 million) in costs related to closing down a troubled salt mine in the Brazilian state of Alagoas, according to a securities filing on Thursday.

Braskem said Brazilian mining regulator ANM has required the company to take a series of measures to secure the site of the mine, which has damaged residential neighborhoods in the state capital of Maceio.
