West Coast Olefins of Calgary secured a 300-acre site in the BCR Industrial Area within Prince George, British Columbia in preparation for the construction of a $5.6 billion petrochemical project. The project will include a world-scale ethylene plant and polyethylene facility. Most of the polyethylene product will be shipped to growing Asian markets.
The project will include an NGL recovery plant to recover ethane, propane, butane and natural gas condensate from Enbridge’s west coast pipeline; an ethylene plant to produce one million tons per year of polymer-grade ethylene; and a polyethylene plant to consume most of the ethylene produced.
