Project Details


Developed by Braskem-Idesa, a joint venture between Brazilian petrochemical firm Braskem (70%) and Mexican group Idesa (30%), the project involves the construction of a petrochemical complex that will produce ethylene and polyethylene (PE) of low (LDPE) and high (HDPE) density. The complex will include an ethane-based ethylene cracker unit that uses Technip technology; two HDPE plants that use Ineos Innovene technology; an LDPE plant that uses Basel Lupotech technology; storage, waste treatment and utility facilities; a combined-cycle power and steam co-generation plant; a multimodal logistics platform; a control room; and administrative, maintenance and other ancillary buildings. A pipeline to transport Pemex's oil supply is also part of the project's specifications. Factory output will reduce imports of petrochemicals greatly.
