Petronas and Saudi Aramco plan month end start up cracker at Rapid complex in Pengerang


Malaysia's state-owned Petronas and Saudi Aramco are targeting a June end start up of cracker operations at the 300,000 bpd Rapid refinery and petrochemicals complex in Pengerang, Malaysia by the end of June. 

Pengerang's cracker is linked to petrochemical units that have a design capacity to produce 1mln tpa of ethylene, 900,00 tpa of propylene, 165,000 tpa  of benzene and 180,000 tpa of butadiene (BD). The complex also has associated downstream units for 750,000 tpa of polyethylene (PE) and 900,000 tpa of polypropylene (PP).

The complex was scheduled to start operations in early April, hut an explosion and a fire on 12 April has led to the postponement. The blast hit the refinery's 140,000 bpd atmospheric residue desulphurisation unit.
