More polyolefin capacity underway for Nova Chemicals Corp. and Borouge

Nova will open a major new polyethylene production line in Joffre, Alberta by the end of 2015. The new line will be partially supplied with ethane feedstock imported from North Dakota. “We’ve already got steel in the ground,” Sr Vice President Bezaire said. Nova officials previously said the line would have around 1 bln lbs of annual PE capacity. Nova will have retrofitted its olefins cracker in Corunna, Ontario, to run solely on natural gas-based ethane feedstock, by the end of the year. Natural gas for the cracker will be piped in from part of the Marcellus Shale region in Pennsylvania. Bezaire added that Nova is considering adding PE production either in Ontario or on the U.S. Gulf Coast. He said the firm would have “a path forward” on those plans by the end of the year.
