    中国石化新闻网讯 据道琼斯3月21日消息,埃克森美孚公司周二表示,公司已开始为美国墨西哥湾沿岸一个潜在的项目制定工程计划,该项目将使其聚丙烯生产能力提高45万吨/年。

    这家总部位于得州的能源巨头表示,公司预期将于今年稍晚对上述项目做出最后决定。埃克森美孚表示,该项目将耗资数亿美元,最早于2021年建成投产。

    埃克森美孚公司表示,该生产设施将帮助满足高性能轻量化耐用塑料日益增长的需求,将生产先进的聚丙烯产品,用于高性能汽车、器具和包装应用领域。

    埃克森美孚公司化工部门负责人John Verity表示:“我们在墨西哥湾沿岸计划中的大多数投资项目聚焦于供应象亚洲这样的新兴市场,这些新兴市场的高需求产品最终将刺激当地经济出现新的增长。”

    埃克森美孚称,这笔投资是计划中的13处新设施之一,这些设施将把该公司在北美和亚太地区的化学品制造产能提高约40%。

    今年1月份,埃克森美孚公司表示,公司计划未来五年在美国投资500亿美元扩大业务。

    Exxon Considers Expanding Polypropylene Production Along Gulf Coast

    Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) on Tuesday said it has started working on engineering plans for a potential U.S. Gulf Coast project that would expand its polypropylene manufacturing capacity by up to 450,000 tons a year.

    The Texas-based energy giant said it expects to make a final decision regarding the project later this year. The facility would cost several hundred million dollars, with startup as early as 2021, the company said.

    The facility would help meet growing demand for high-performance, lightweight durable plastics and produce advanced polypropylene products that could be used in high-performance automotive, appliance, and packaging applications, the company said.

    "Most of our planned investment in the Gulf Coast region is focused on supplying emerging markets like Asia with high-demand products, which ultimately will spur new economic growth locally," said John Verity, president of Exxon's chemical division.

    The investment would be one of 13 new facilities planned to expand Exxon's chemical manufacturing capacity in North America and Asia Pacific by about 40%, the company said.

    Exxon in January said it plans to spend $50 billion to expand its business in the U.S. in the next five years.
