HOUSTON, June 28 -- Qatar Petroleum (QP) and ExxonMobil Chemical Co. agreed to jointly conduct a feasibility study for the construction of a world-scale, ethane-based cracker and ethylene derivatives complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.
The study will define the technical and commercial aspects of a world-class petrochemical growth platform in Qatar, the companies said. The complex will use ethane feedstock from new gas development projects in Qatar's North Field. End products will be marketed to Asia and Europe.
