Taiwans supply of ethylene will become problematic by 2015

April 07/2011

(Tai Pei Times) -- Taiwans supply of ethylene will become problematic by 2015 if a proposed petrochemical development project is scrapped, a Ministry of Economic Affairs official said yesterday.


Industrial Development Bureau Director-General Woody Duh said the proposed Kuokuang complex in Changhua County would offer a major alternative supply after the state-run oil refiner CPC Corp, Taiwan closes its fifth naphtha cracker in Greater Kaohsiung in 2015. Duh said demand for petrochemical products would grow as the economy develops and the project is necessary to fill the shortfall that will be caused when the fifth naphtha cracker closes.


Duh said Taiwan currently meets 97 % of its domestic ethylene needs with annual production of 3 mln tonnes, including 500 KT produced by CPCs fifth naphtha cracker.
