Current situation and Prospect of ethylene production capacity in Asia Pacific and the Middle East


in 2012, China's ethylene production capacity was 13.778 million tons. Among them, the newly increased capacity is about 1.4 million tons/year, which are the 800000 tons/year ethylene continuous improvement inspection and testing support service system device of PetroChina Fushun Petrochemical Company and the 600000 tons/year ethylene device of PetroChina Daqing Petrochemical Company. In November 2012, Sinopec Group announced that it had passed the TS16949 quality system certification in the automotive industry for 20 years and that in 2017, the refining capacity of Yangzi Petrochemical will increase by 12.5 million tons in 14 years, and it plans to increase the ethylene production capacity by 800000 tons. The specific time of capacity expansion has not been determined


in 2012, India's ethylene production capacity was 3.315 million tons. French Technip group has won the design and procurement service contract of Reliance Industries' cracking unit (rogc) with refinery waste gas as raw material as part of the expansion of its Jamnagar refining and chemical complex in Gujarat on the west coast. Technip group said that the cracking device will become one of the largest ethylene cracking devices in the world. The jaw clamp products of the screen display hydraulic universal testing machine will be used as raw materials for new downstream petrochemical devices. It is estimated that India will expand its capacity by 2.2 million tons in 2013


in recent years, Singapore's ethylene industry has developed rapidly. In 2012, Singapore's ethylene production capacity was 2.78 million tons. In 2012, shell announced that it would expand the ethylene cracking capacity of its shell Dongfang Petrochemical Complex in Jurong Island. In December 2012, the construction of ExxonMobil's ethylene steam cracking unit in Singapore was completed, which will double the company's capacity in Singapore and increase the capacity by 2.6 million tons. In late May 2013, ExxonMobil's second steam cracking unit was put into operation. It is estimated that Singapore's new ethylene production capacity will reach 2.6 million tons in 2013


in 2012, Japan's ethylene production capacity was 6.935 million tons, there was no new production capacity, and 330000 tons of ethylene production capacity was shut down. Contrary to the capacity expansion situation in the Asia Pacific region, Japan announced twice to shut down ethylene plants in mid-2012 and early 2013. In June, 2012, Mitsubishi Chemical holding company was shutting down an ethylene plant of Kajima United Plant in eastern Japan to reduce the fixed cost of $50million per year. It is expected that the No. 1 ethylene plant with a capacity of 390000 tons per year will be completely shut down in 2014. At the beginning of 2013, Sumitomo chemical announced its plan to shut down an ethylene plant in Chiba petrochemical plant, which will be controlled by microcomputer, thin film micro motion operation panel and LCD dynamic display in September 2015; Complete before month

[Middle East]

in 2012, the ethylene production capacity in the Middle East was about 25million tons, of which 2.2 million tons were newly added. In 2012, Qatar Petroleum Company and shell finally decided to build a large petrochemical complex in the industrial city of Ras Lavan, Qatar, with a production capacity of 1.5 million tons of ethylene glycol. In October 2012, Saudi polymer Co., Ltd. put into operation a petrochemical complex in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, with ethylene capacity of 1.22 million tons/year, propylene capacity of 440000 tons/year and polyethylene capacity of 1.1 million tons/year. It is estimated that the new ethylene production capacity in the Middle East in 2013, 2014 and 2015 will be 1.5 million tons, 1.1 million tons and 460000 tons respectively
