SCG Chemicals Expects Full Production at ‘Long Son Petrochemicals’ Facility Early 2024

Vietnam’s Long Son Petrochemicals, a unit of Thailand’s SCG Chemicals, announced a test run of its new petrochemical complex in the southern region in November and December, according to the report from Reuters, citing the company’s statement on Wednesday.

The commercialized date of this giant petrochemical facility has been delayed from September. The complex is now expecting a full commercial production to begin early next year.

The complex comprises a world-scale grassroots mixed-feed cracker, downstream polyolefins plants (HDPE, PP and LLDPE), central utilities unit, port, jetty and storage facilities and other associated facilities.

This $5 billion facility will produce 1.4 million metric tons of plastic resins a year. Its raw materials, naphtha and propane, will be imported mostly from the Middle East.

SCG Chemicals (SCGC) is a unit of Thai conglomerate Siam Cement Group (SET: SCC).
