New Singapore cracker producing ethylene

ExxonMobil Corp. has started producing ethylene from the second steam cracker at its Singapore chemical complex (OGJ Online, Dec. 28, 2012).

The expansion added 2.6 million tonnes/year of finished product capacity, doubling capacity of the complex.

Over the next few weeks, ExxonMobil said, the complex will increase production from three polyethylene plants, two polypropylene plants, a specialty metallocene elastomers unit, and expanded oxo-alcohol and aromatics units.

The expansion provides what the company described in a press statement as “unparalleled feedstock flexibility in the industry.”

The complex is powered by a 375-Mw cogeneration plant.
