Our Plant, Facilities & Products

Our Plant and Facilities

PCS’ ethylene plants incorporate the latest technology, allowing for the flexible use of naphtha, gas oil and LPG to achieve the most economical mix of feedstock. Our other plants further optimise the value of all our product streams. The entire manufacturing operation is controlled by state-of-the-art process control systems. A comprehensive network of pipelines and storage tanks allows for a seamless flow of products to our customers on Jurong Island and beyond.

We also supply utilities such as seawater, steam, compressed air as well as provide common facilities and services such as berths and security fire fighting services to ensure the efficient and safe operation of the Complex.

Our Products

PCS is recognised as a leading producer of ethylene and propylene, and other by-products in the region. The capacities of our two crackers together with our metathesis plant; total 1.1 million tonnes per year of ethylene and more than 800,000 tonnes per year of propylene. We also produce acetylene, butadiene, 1-butene, MTBE, benzene, toluene and xylene.  Products that are not consumed in the Complex are exported to the region.

With debottlenecking and additional facilities, including a 200,000 tonnes per year metathesis plant and a 100,000 tonnes per year butadiene plant, PCS’ manufacturing capacities have increased over the years. To further strengthen its infrastructure, a 240,000 m3  Naphtha Import Facilities is under construction. Additionally, a PCS/Shell joint-venture condensate splitter unit in Shell Bukom is another source of supply of PCS’ naphtha needs, via a five-kilometre long submarine pipeline. These investments further strengthen PCS’ competitiveness and provides increased flexibility to the Complex.
