ExxonMobil celebrates capacity-doubling expansion at Singapore chemical plant

Mary Page Bailey

ExxonMobil Corp. (Irving, Tex.; www.exxonmobil.com) reinforced its longterm supply commitment to the fast-growing Asia-Pacific market during an event celebrating the expansion of its Singapore chemical production facility.  ExxonMobil’s expansion project doubled the size of its finished product capacity in Singapore, making it the largest chemical expansion in the company’s history.  The Singapore chemical facility, which now accounts for about one-quarter of ExxonMobil’s global chemical capacity, incorporates more than 40 new proprietary technologies and is designed to be one of ExxonMobil’s most efficient and flexible sites. For example, a new steam cracker can process a wide range of feedstock, from light gases to crude oil, to produce an expanded slate of premium and commodity petrochemicals.

ExxonMobil has operated in Singapore for 120 years and is one of the country’s largest foreign manufacturing investors. The company employs 2,000 people at its refining and chemical production complex in Singapore. ExxonMobil cogeneration facilities, with a capacity of 360 MW, meet the steam and electricity needs of the manufacturing complex, resulting in lower operating costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
