Indorama Group is mulling over expanding production capacity at its facility in Nigeria. The new capacity is slated to come on stream by the end of 2017, as Managing Director/CEO of Indorama-Nigeria Mr. Manish Mundra reported. Indorama’s annual production will be sufficient to meet the entire domestic demand after completion.

A source based in Nigeria said, “Local availability is expected to increase over the near term given the upcoming capacity additions to the PET market by the end of this year. We might even have a supply surplus for local consumption. Moreover, we believe that the country will have enough petrochemical availability inside thanks to the Dangote refinery, which will be ready by 2018 or 2019. As for import market, trading started to improve as banks are injecting dollars to the market gradually and easing the process of opening letters of credit.”

No further details were provided about the current capacity and the size of planned expansion at the time of press.
