Basell: Spheripol for Qatar
Qatar Petroleum, a global leader in the energy sector, has selected Basell’s Spheripol technology for a new 700 KT per year polypropylene plant that will be built in Mesaieed, Qatar, as part of the Qatar Petrochemical Complex project. The unit will be operated by a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and Honam Petrochemical of Korea. Start-up is expected in 2011.
This is the second license sold by Basell in Qatar this year. A Lupotech T low density polyethylene license was recently granted to QAPCO for a new plant in Mesaieed. With the new license Basell has passed the milestone of 20 million tonnes of licensed capacity for the Spheripol process.
