Work to start on Jurong condensate project

By OGJ editors

Jurong Aromatics Corp. (JAC) will break ground Aug. 26 on a large condensate processing complex on Jurong Island, Singapore.

The facility will process 4.5 million tonnes/year (tpy) of condensate to produce 1.44 million tpy of aromatics and 2.47 million tpy of petroleum products, including jet fuel, diesel, and low-sulfur fuel oil. It will have a condensate splitter to produce heavy naphtha feedstock.

Aromatic yields will be 800,000 tpy of paraxylene, 438,000 tpy of benzene, and 200,000 tpy of orthoxylene.

JAC is a group of eight shareholders led by SK Group of South Korea. SK E&C is the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor. SK affiliates will perform maintenance and repair after completion, provide feedstock, and buy products.

ChemOne Pte. Ltd. is developer of the project, construction of which is expected to take 36 months.

Construction was delayed by the financial crisis of 2007. The project resumed after reorganization of JAC ownership.
