Petronas selects INEOS’ Innovene G technology for LL/HDPE plant

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA: Petronas has selected INEOS Technologies’ Innovene G gas phase fluidised bed process for the linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)/high-density polyethylene (HDPE) project. LL/HDPE plant is a portion of Petronas’ Refinery & Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project.

The 350 kilotonne per annuma LL/HDPE plant will manufacture a full line of high value polyethylene resins, including HDPE, LLDPE and metallocene LLDPE. The products from this plant will serve the Malaysian and other Asian markets in high performance film, moulding and packaging for industrial and consumer applications.  

“We are pleased with this award from Petronas and look forward to supporting this key element of their RAPID mega-project in Malaysia,” said Dr Peter Williams, CEO, INEOS Technologies.

The petrochemical component of the project will allow Petronas to expand its product portfolio from commodity petrochemicals to premium differentiated and specialty chemicals, capitalising on the growing demand for these higher value products in the Asia Pacific region.
