Brazil Petrobras reveals petchem capacities

August 22/2011

(ICIS) -- Petroquimico do Rio de Janeiro (Comperj), reflecting the addition of a second refinery and the use of feedstock ethane, the company said on Friday. The company also revealed proposed capacity figures for several petrochemicals to be produced at the complex. Under the previous plans, Comperj would rely on one refinery to produce feedstock naphtha for its downstream chemicals. In addition, Comperj would use the resulting feedstock to produce 600 KTa of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Under the new plans, Comperj will have two refineries and a natural-gas treatment plant, which will provide the complex with feedstock ethane, Petrobras said. Petrobras made the changes so it could meet rising demand in Brazil.
