FPC seeks Govt approval for enhancing ethylene production

The only publicly traded oil refiner, Formosa Petrochemical Corp (FPC), is likely to get Government approval to increase the annual capacity of its largest ethylene plant by 10 percent in the next year.

The Mailiao based FPC is seeking to expand production capacity of its third ethylene plant from 1.2 million tons to 1.32 million tons.

Moreover, production as such would increase from the present 1.32 to 1.45 million tons annually.

Expansion of capacity is sought largely on grounds of greater demand of the manufacturers for the raw material used in the production of imitation leather and other goods.

Last year, the country imported about 423,000 tons of the raw material and produced 3.67 million tons. No additional investments will be required for the expansion project since the equipment already has the capacity to meet increased production demand.

Formosa Petrochemical has three ethylene plants whose total annual capacity amounts to 2.94 million tons. This apart it has three crude distillation units that can process a total of 540,000 barrels a day.

An approval has been sought from the Taiwanese Government to construct a fourth crude processing unit having a planned capacity of 180,000 barrels a day.
