World's largest ethylene production complex opens

The biggest ethylene manufacturing plant in the world, a vital raw material in the textile industry was put in to operation from Monday in Iran. The Jam Petrochemical Complex (JPC) is located in Boushehr province in Southern Iran.

The JPC complex set up at a cost of US $2.2 billion will have a 1,320 million tons per annum of ethylene manufacturing capacity. Other than this the plant will also produce 306,000 tons per annum of propylene, 600,000 tons per annum of polyethylene, 300,000 tons per annum of polypropylene, 443,000 tons of ethylene glycol and other compounds.

The first phase of the ethylene unit at the Jam Petrochemical Complex became operational in March and now with the starting of the second phase, JPC gets the distinction for operating the biggest ethylene plant globally.

But experts say the addition of this new ethylene capacity may see over capacity in Asian region and lead to more cut throat competition what with additional capacities being set up in China by the world's biggest petrochemical producers.

Earlier China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. and PetroChina Co; the country's biggest oil companies had announced plans to commission as many as 12 crackers, each with capacity of about 1 million tons a year between 2007 and 2011.

The other global giant Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company plans to build a US $3.5 billion refining and chemicals complex in partnership with Exxon Mobil and China Petroleum & Chemical in Fujian province.
