According to media reports, Shell Chemical has completed expansion works at its naphtha-fed steam cracker in Bukom Island, Singapore. The cracker’s olefins and aromatics capacity has reportedly increased by over 20% following the expansion work. The expansion project is a part of Shell’s Eastern Petrochemicals Complex (SEPC) project.

Before the expansion project, the cracker, which came online in March 2010, had a capacity to produce 800,000 tons/year of ethylene, 450,000 tons/year of propylene, 230,000 tons/year of benzene and 155,000 tons/year of butadiene.

It was reported that some of the output obtained from the upgraded cracker will be used to support the company’s MEG plant at nearby Jurong Island. The MEG plant, which is operated under SEPC, has a production capacity of 750,000 tons/year.
