Qapco polyethylene output to hit 700,000 tonnes by end-11

November 11/2010

(Gulf Times) -- Qatar Petrochemical Companys polyethylene production will scale up to 700,000 tonnes per year (tpy) by 2011-end, Qapco general manager Dr Mohamed Yousef al-Mulla has said. The production boost is achieved through the LDPE 3 plant, which is being set up at Mesaieed, al-Mulla told Gulf Times yesterday. Qapcos two existing low-density polyethylene (LDPE) production lines account for about 400,000 tpy.

Al-Mulla said Qapcos ethylene production capacity would also scale up to 1.4mn tpy following the expansion. Currently, Qapco produces 800,000 tpy of ethylene.

Qapco is one of the leading ethylene and polyethylene producers in the Middle East, and was established in 1974 as a joint multinational venture to utilise the associated and non-associated ethane gas from Qatars petroleum production.
