Sabic’s Wilton LDPE Plant Finally Ready for Production

20 Aug 2009 • by Natalie Aster

Sabic’s LDPE plant at Wilton is due to come on stream in September, two years after its originally forecast start up.

The facility, which has been delayed by construction issues, was sold to Sabic by Huntsman for $700m in September 2006 as part of a package that included its petrochemicals arm. As part of the deal, Sabic agreed to take over construction on the 400,000tpa LDPE plant – pledging $150m to finalise the build by the end of 2007.

Sabic says the plant is now ready to start operations with fully capacity of 400,000 tpa LDPE being achieved during 2010.
