Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte.) Ltd.
and Petrochemical Corp. of Singapore (PCS) will invest $100 million in a 50-50 project to build a condensate splitting unit (CSU) at Shell's Pulau Bukom refinery in Singapore. The 70,000 b/d CSU will separate the feed into six products: LPG, light and heavy naphtha, kerosine, gas oil, and a small residue stream. Subsea pipelines will link the unit with Pulau Seraya, from which further lines will deliver naphtha to PCS's petrochemical complex on Pulau Ayer Merbau. Shell will manage all condensate feed supply and products offtake and operate the facility, which is expected to be completed by mid-2000.
