Canada to finance new propylene, PP projects
The reports indicate that Pembina, which is a joint venture with Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Company, will receive C$300 million to build a propylene and PP facility worth $3.8 billion to $4.2 billion. The construction is expected to start in 2019 in Sturgeon County and is planned to start operating in 2021.
Similarly, Inter Pipeline will reportedly receive C$200 million in royalty credits to build a propylene and PP facility worth $1.85 billion. The facility is expected to process about 22,000 barrels/day of propane in order to produce propylene after it starts operating in 2021 in Strathcona County.
Both facilities will turn propane into propylene and then into PP.
