China’s SINOPEC SABIC Tianjin Petrochemical Co. (SSTPC) kicked off its ethylene expansion project on Oct. 14, Reuters reported, citing a company statement.
The expansion aims to boost SSTPC’s ethylene annual capacity to 1.3 million tons from 1.0 million tons. However, the completion date for the expansion was not given.
SSTPC is a Tianjin-based petrochemical firm jointly set up by China Petroleum & Chemical Corp and Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) in 2009.
China, the world’s top chemicals consumer, is building and planning a total of 15 ethylene complexes before 2023, in the biggest wave of petrochemical expansions in its history.
