14th Phenol/Acetone & Derivatives Markets

07-08 Mar, 2017 - Bangkok

The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok

About Event

"Market Consolidation amidst Shifting Trade Patterns

& Capacity Surplus"

The Asian phenol market is experiencing an overcapacity since 2 years ago due to new plants commissioned in China, Thailand and South Korea. Phenol market players will have to brace themselves for an influx of new supplies this year as additional phenol capacities from China’s CNOOC and Shell Petrochemicals Co. (CSPC), India’s Deepak Phenolics and Saudi Arabia’s Petro Rabigh are expected to come on-stream. 


Will the demand for downstream derivatives catch up with the current supply? 


Acetone, on the other hand, is facing a run-up in prices and with phenol producer cutting output, it might lead to a tighter acetone supply. How will this impact acetone derivatives market?

New Refinery-Petchem Complex Underway in China

Posted on : 05 Dec, 2016


China will get another refinery-petchem complex soon. The country’s Zhejiang Rongsheng plans to set up a refinery-petrochemical complex in Zhoushan. The complex will be built under a joint venture between Zhejiang Rongsheng and other prospective partners - Tongkun Group and Juhua Group each expected to have up to a 25% equity stake in the project. Zhejiang will own the majority stake of 50 percent in the project.


The $24 billion project is planned to be built in two phases in China's eastern Zhejiang province. The complex will have refining capacity of 40m tonnes/year or 800,000 bbl/day, ethylene capacity of 2.8m tonnes/year, with aromatics production estimated at 10.4m tonnes/year, and a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit with a total capacity of 1.2m tonnes/year.


The first phase of the petchem-refining complex is expected to commence operations by end of 2018, while the second phase is due in 2020.


The plant will produce polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), ethylene oxide/ethylene glycol (EO/EG), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), styrene, butadiene (BD), methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE)/butylene 1, phenol, acetone, bisphenol A (BPA), polycarbonate, acrylonitrile (ACN) and methyl methacrylate (MMA).


More about new capacity additions will be discussed at 14th Phenol/Acetone & Derivatives Markets on 7-8 March, 2017 in Bangkok.
