Repsol to build metallocene LLDPE plant at Tarragona complex

According to media reports, Spain’s Repsol is planning to construct a metallocene LLDPE unit at its Tarragona petrochemical complex. The company reportedly will begin construction of the unit in June, which is expected to last around three months.

The company aims to differentiate its product range and thereby increase its competitiveness among its rivals for the next 10 years. Repsol also seeks to compete against HDPE imports from areas having the advantage of low-cost feedstocks as HDPE reportedly constituted 40% of Spain’s consumption in 2014.

Meanwhile, the company’s proposed project may cause its Tarragona HDPE plant to be shut for around three months as both units will share some facilities and equipment for production. Repsol is reportedly planning to divide the shutdown duration into two independent periods of one and one-half months and it is not expected to announce force majeure during these periods.
