ExxonMobil Singapore shut PE & PP plants for maintenance

March 16/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- ExxonMobil Chemical has taken off-stream its polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) plants in Jurong Island, as per Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in Singapore informed that the company has commenced maintenance at the plants in early-March 2017. The plants are expected to remain shut until end-March 2017.

Located on Jurong Island in Singapore, the complex have a PE production capacity of 1.9 million mt/year and PP production capacity of 930,000 mt/year.

As MRC informed before, in November 2016, ExxonMobil announced its plans to add a new production unit at its Beaumont PE plant that will increase capacity by 65% or approximately 650,000 tonnes per year to meet growing demand for high performance plastics. Construction of the new unit began at the plant in late 2016, where current PE production capacity is 1 million tonnes per year. Startup is expected in 2019.

ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned company in the energy industry and produces about 3% of the world's oil and about 2% of the world's energy.
