Hungary’s MOL plans to invest $1.9bn in petrochemicals
MOL plans to invest in profitable propylene derivatives and improve propylene production in the next five years.
It is expected that the first phase of strategic projects will make a contribution worth $250-300 million every year to the company’s EBITDA and customer services will deduct up to 20% from its total EBITDA by 2021.
The aim of the company is to be the only fully integrated supplier in CEE because European supply growth is driven by this region.
Plus, the company is planning to make investments in propylene oxide based polyols due to its high value in packaging, furniture, manufacturing and automotive industries.
The company plans to increase feedstocks which are needed for its petrochemical plants and derive a profit from increasing demand for jet fuel, lubricant and base oil products.
