SOCAR GPC, a gas-processing project of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR), has selected UNIPOLTM PE Technology licensed by Univation Technologies for use in its world-scale 600 000 tpy polyethylene plant to be built in Garadagh, Azerbaijan. This project represents the first UNIPOL PE process licensed in Azerbaijan and by SOCAR. The new polyethylene facility will take advantage of the flexibility of the UNIPOL PE process to manufacture conventional and advanced polyethylene products covering a broad range of both high-density polyethylene (HDPE), including 'best-in-class' HDPE injection molding grades, as well as linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) resin grades.
SOCAR GPC has also selected Univation’s XCATTM metallocene polyethylene technology for the manufacture of advanced metallocene film structures suitable for high performance food packaging, stretch-wrap, heavy-duty sack and specialised multi-layer applications. Production output from this new PE plant will be focused on satisfying growing polyethylene demand in both domestic and European markets in a wide range of goods. SOCAR’s UNIPOL PE process line will deliver a broad, flexible product mix with the agility to shift between HDPE and LLDPE over time to meet their customers’ evolving needs and underlying market opportunities. Furthermore, this world-scale 600 000 tpa line will allow significant economy-of-scale benefits enabling both project capital cost efficiencies and ongoing highly competitive manufacturing costs.
As part of the Univation-Linde Alliance, Linde AG (Engineering Division) will complete the basic engineering design package (BEDP) for the project. In 2016, Univation and Linde Engineering entered into an Alliance relationship focused on delivering operating and capital cost advantages for both new build and retrofit projects for UNIPOL PE technology.
