OMV boosts butadiene output at refineries

OMV is investing €230 million to add a butadiene plant at its 73,000-b/d refinery at Berghausen, Germany, and to upgrade a butadiene plant at its 193,000-b/d refinery at Schwechat, Austria.

The company didn’t disclose capacities but said the combined capacities would represent 6% of European butadiene production.

The extended Schwechat plant is to start production in June 2014. The new Berghausen plant is to start up in the second quarter of 2015.
