Taiwan’s CPC considers new petchem investments in India, Indonesia, US
Accordingly, CPC and several other petrochemical companies visited India this year to examine the country’s market dynamics. The Taiwanese company is expected to partner with several other producers, namely with renowned Japanese investors who previously showed interest in the possible petrochemical park project in Mundra, India.
The company is mulling over setting up an ethylene unit in the petrochemical park in India with an estimated capacity ranging from 1 million tons/year to 1.5 million tons/year.
CPC will also reportedly move its mothballed naphtha cracker in Taiwan to Indonesia, where the company is planning to set up a petrochemical park in Indonesia. The cracker is scheduled to be relocated in Indonesia by the end of next year.
The media also reported that the company is evaluating a possible investment project in the US, while the exact location of the project remains undecided.
