Progress towards an integrated petrochemical complex in Kazakhstan

By Gerald Ondrey |

LyondellBasell Industries (Rotterdam, Netherlands; www. Lyondellbasell.com), a partner with SAT &Co. and KMGEP of Kazakhstan Petrochemical Industries Ltd. (KPI), today reaffirmed its ongoing participation in the development and construction, of an integrated petrochemical complex and a gas separation unit (GSU) in the Atyrau region of Kazakhstan. As planned, the petrochemical complex will include a world-scale ethane cracker, a propane dehydrogenation unit, a polypropylene plant and two polyethylene production facilities using LyondellBasell’s latest polyethylene and polypropylene process technologies. The three world-scale plants are scheduled to begin operations in 2014. KPI has successfully completed the feasibility study for this large green field project, and plans to issue in the very near future invitations for construction bids for the Integrated Complex, the GSU and the connecting pipelines. In August 2008 KPI selected the polyolefin technologies that will be used to produce materials at the site.
