BASF to build propylene facility in Spain with Sonatrach

Jul 29, 1997 02:00 AM

July 15, 1997 BASF will form a joint venture with Algerian oil and gas company Sonatrach to build a propane dehydrogenation plant that will produce propylene at a BASF affiliate site in Spain. The plant will produce about 350,000 metric tonnes of propylene per year. Sonatrach intends to supply the feedstock, LNG and propane from a facility in Bethioua, Algeria.
BASF and Sonatrach are carrying out a feasibility study which is due to be completed at the start of 1998 under which BASF will own 51 % and Sonatrach 49 %. The project would also be the first joint venture in petrochemical downstream operations outside Algeria for Sonatrach. If the venture is approved, the plant could begin output in 2001.
Targor GmbH, a joint venture recently established by BASF and chemicals group Hoechst AG, will buy the propylene.
