According to media reports, BP Zhuhai is planning to start up its new PTA plant in Zhuhai, China during the fourth quarter. BP Zhuhai is a joint venture between BP and the Zhuhai Port Corporation. The plant will be able to produce 1.25 million tons/year of PTA.

Meanwhile, BP is planning to upgrade its PTA plants at Cooper River, South Carolina and Geel, Belgium. The estimated value of the upgrade is expected to be over $200 million.

The planned upgrade project is intended to enable the company’s PTA plants to improve their cost competitiveness and minimize their environmental impact through the use of the company’s latest PTA technology. The company’s Cooper River’s PTA1 unit is expected to be upgraded by the middle of 2016 while Geel’s PTA3 unit is projected to be upgraded by the end of 2015.
