ExxonMobil's Singapore Plant Now Operating


ExxonMobil Chemical’s world-scale Singapore chemical plant on Jurong Island is operating. The highly-integrated complex is now supplying petrochemical products to the marketplace, thus further establishing ExxonMobil Chemical as a leading provider of products in the Asia Pacific region.
 “ExxonMobil Chemical’s petrochemical plant in Singapore truly is the model for integration being applied in the industry around the world,” said Daniel S. Sanders, president, ExxonMobil Chemical. “This state-of-the-art, world-scale facility is fully integrated with ExxonMobil’s refinery in Singapore and employs the latest chemical processing technologies for high-performance manufacturing.”
 The $2 billion petrochemical facility, the company’s single largest investment in the Asia Pacific region, has four plants designed to deliver a wide range of petrochemical products to customers. Its centerpiece is an 800,000-ton-per-year steam cracker, which produces ethylene, propylene and other products for several downstream chemical plants in and around Singapore.
The facility also features a 480,000-ton-per-year polyethylene plant, the largest single reactor plant of its type in the world, a 315,000-ton-per-year polypropylene plant and a 150,000-ton-per-year oxo alcohol plant.
