ExxonMobil expands ethylene cracker in Singapore

SINGAPORE: ExxonMobil’s Singapore Chemical Plant is now producing ethylene from the facility’s second world-scale steam cracker. The expansion is integrated with the existing petrochemical plant. Over the next few weeks, the petrochemical complex, powered by a 375-megawatt cogeneration plant, will increase production at its three polyethylene plants, two polypropylene plants, a specialty metallocene elastomers unit and the expanded oxo-alcohol and aromatics units.

“This expansion gives ExxonMobil unparalleled feedstock flexibility in the industry and positions the Singapore petrochemical complex well to serve growth markets from China to the Indian sub-continent and beyond. We are committed to meeting the regional demand for petrochemical products and to contributing to Singapore’s growth,” said Matthew Aguiar, Chairman and Managing Director, ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd.
