Expansion of the Batangas Petrochemical Complex

Country: Philippines

Client: JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation

Company in charge: Tecnimont

The contract, first in the Philippines for the Maire Tecnimont Group, includes the implementation of a new High Density Polyethylene unit (HDPE) and the upgrading of an existing Polypropylene unit (PP) in a joint venture with JGC Philippines. The project scope entails Engineering, Procurement and Construction activities up to Ready for Commissioning.

Once the project is completed, the new HDPE plant will have a capacity of 250,000 tons per year of HDPE based on Chevron Phillips Chemical’s MarTECH™ technology, while the existing PP plant will expand to 300,000 tons per year of PP based on Grace’s UNIPOL® PP technology.

Through this important first step in the Philippines for a prestigious client such as JGSPC, Tecnimont confirms its global leadership in polyolefins, and consolidates its technology-driven footprint in South East Asia, a market with a very promising downstream investment cycle thanks to the availability of natural resources and the growing demand for chemical products.
