BASF Total Investment Supports Import Of Butylenes

Nov. 14, 2017
BASF Total Petrochemicals LLC strengthens integration with Total Port Arthur Refinery.

BASF Total Petrochemicals LLC enhances the production capabilities of its petrochemical complex, located in Port Arthur, Texas, by installing processing and treatment facilities for the import of butylenes and butanes from the Total Port Arthur Refinery. The installation enables BASF Total Petrochemicals to make use of these refinery byproducts to produce higher value propylene, according to the company. The company previously implemented measures enabling the facility to take advantage of lighter, lower cost feedstocks, such as ethane.

“The Port Arthur site is one of the key industrial platforms for Total in the world,” says Christophe Gerondeau, president and chief executive officer of Total Petrochemicals & Refining USA, Inc. “This investment creates value for both BASF Total Petrochemicals and the Total Port Arthur refinery through industrial synergies.”
