Jurong Aromatics likely to start trial runs at Singapore complex by April

January 31/2014

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Jurong Aromatics Corporation (JAC) could start trial runs at its USD2.4 billion petrochemical complex in Singapore by April, said Businesstime

The project includes a 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) condensate splitter and an aromatics complex and it will be mechanically complete in February, the sources said.

The company spokesman declined to comment.

The splitter, one of three to start operation in Asia this year, will tighten supply of condensate, a super light oil produced from gas fields, while adding more oil products and petrochemicals in Asia, trade sources said.

The plant will produce 1.5 million tonnes per year (tpy) of aromatics and 2.7 million tpy of petroleum products a year, JAC had said. The oil products will comprise 783,000 tpy of jet fuel, 662,000 tpy of ultra-low sulphur diesel, 647,000 tpy of naphtha, 283,000 tpy of naphtha and 195,000 tpy of fuel oil.

SK Group and Jiangsu Sanfangxiang Group are the project's largest shareholders.

As MRC wrote before, ExxonMobil officially opened its multi-billion dollar Singapore chemical plant expansion on Jurong Island, to serve growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The expansion included a second 1-million-t/y steam cracker, two 650,000-t/y polyethylene plants, a 450,000-t/y polypropylene plant, a 300,000-t/y specialty elastomers unit, an aromatics extraction facility to produce 340,000 t/y of benzene, and a 125,000-t/y oxo-alcohol expansion.
