Far East Petrochemical Company has selected Axens’ Technologies for the Production of 1-Butene and 1-Hexene

FEBRUARY 28 - 2012
Axens’ Technologies for the Production of 1-Butene

ZAO “Far East Petrochemical Company” (FEPCO), which is implementing the project of OJSC “NK Rosneft” for the construction of petrochemical complex to be located in Primorsk region (Russia) has selected Axens’ AlphaButol® and AlphaHexol™ technologies for the production of high purity Linear Alpha-Olefins. It is foreseen that AlphaButol and AlphaHexol units with cumulating capacity of 50,000 tons per year of Linear Alpha-Olefins will be included into this complex.

AlphaButol will supply high purity 1-Butene by ethylene dimerization , while AlphaHexol will produce high purity 1-Hexene by ethylene trimerization. Based on homogeneous catalysis and associated to a low investment cost, both technologies are designed and optimized to ensure a flexible and reliable source of high quality co-monomers for downstream Polyolefins applications.

ZAO "Far East Petrochemical Company" (FEPCO)
ZAO “Far East Petrochemical Company” has been created in 2011 for implementation of the project of OJSC “NK Rosnest for the construction of petrochemical complex to be located in Primorsk region, near Poselok Pervostoiteley, Nakhodka urban district. The project is aimed at production of polymers (polyethylene and polypropylene), benzene, olefins and a number of other petrochemicals. The total feed capacity of the first train facilities will amount to 3.4 million tons per year. In 4Q2011 licensors for all technologies have been selected. The most important criteria for the selection were as follow: the creation of the state-of-the-art petrochemical plant with implementation of the up-todate technologies, as well as decreasing anthropogenic impact on the environment and ensuring the maximum safety level of the future industrial plant.
