CAP signed the 7-year term loan facility agreement, which amounts to $265 million, with various local and international banks, including Bangkok Bank PCL, Siam Commercial Bank PCL, Indonesia Eximbank, DBS Bank Ltd., and Deutsche Bank AG, according to CAP.

The cracker expansion project, estimated to cost $380 million, began in this year’s fourth quarter, with commercial production slated to start at yearend 2015, according to CAP.
