By an OGJ correspondent
BANGKOK, Feb. 21 -- Aromatics (Thailand) PLC (ATC) has teamed with Rayong Refinery Co. (RRC) to build a second aromatics complex in Thailand's eastern Rayong Province. Originally, ATC had planned the complex alone (OGJ Online, Oct. 25, 2005).

The $1.07 billion project includes an aromatics complex and a reforming facility.

The complex will have production capacity of 2.88 million tonnes/year. Output will include 616,000 tonnes/year of paraxylene and 363,000 tonnes/year of benzene.

The facilities are expected to begin commercial operations in third-quarter 2008.
