Petrochemical Development in Alberta - Developing New Demand for Propane
Kevin Jagger, Market Development at Pembina Pipeline Corporation
In May 2017 Pembina Pipeline announced that it, along with Petrochemical Industries Company of Kuwait, had reached key milestones for the proposed integrated propylene and polypropylene production facility. Pembina and PIC have executed 50/50 joint venture agreements and have formed a new entity, Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation. Currently CKPC is proceeding with activities for front end engineering design. This world-scale combined propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene upgrading facility represents an opportunity to develop crucial new market demand for propane in Alberta. Join us for a presentation by Kevin Jagger, Manager, Market Development at Pembina Pipeline Corporation.
