By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, July 3 -- Units of ExxonMobil Corp. have brought on stream a $2 billion petrochemical facility on Singapore's Jurong Island.

The complex, which is integrated with ExxonMobil's refinery in Singapore, is now producing petrochemical products. Over the next few months, the project will complete testing and ramp up to full capacity.

The project includes four product plants: an 800,000 tonne/year steam cracker, which produces ethylene, propylene, and other projects for chemical plants in the area; a 480,000 tonne/year polyethylene plant; a 315,000 tonne/year polypropylene plant; and a 150,000 tonne/year oxo alcohol plant.

It also includes a 155-Mw cogeneration unit that provides power to the refinery and the chemical plant.

Work on the complex began in 1997 (OGJ, Nov. 29, 1999).
