QAPCO Ready to Inaugurate the LDPE-3 Unit

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/8/2012, Location: Middle East

QAPCO is building a new LDPE Plant (LDPE-3) within its existing facilities area located at Mesaieed Industrial City (MIC) as a part of QAPCO’s strategy, to more effectively utilize the natural resources of Qatar and to meet the growing demand for polyethylene all over the world.

Launching the LDPE-3 new plant today is, no doubt, a value-added expansion project, which marks another milestone in QAPCO’s history of achievements.

By implementing this project, QAPCO's total annual production capacity of LDPE will reach to 700 KMTA and the combined annual production capacity of Polyolefins (LDPE+LLDPE) will reach to 1.15 MMTA, this will be the highest single site production facility of Polyolefins in the world.

The LDPE-3 Project will be using the excess ethylene produced by QATOFIN and QAPCO, and it is planned to produce annually 300,000 metric tons of low density poly ethylene using the high pressure tubular reactor technology from “Basell” of Germany, the leading technology provider in this application, which was acquired in 2007.

In addition to the new 300,000 metric tons low density polyethylene train, the LDPE3 Project includes a new Central Control Room common for all QAPCO and QATOFIN plants and the integration with existing utility and logistics facilities of QAPCO and QATOFIN.

The LDPE3 Project is planned to be inaugurated on the 20th of November 2012 and will be managed by QAPCO’s Project Management team.
