09:04 EDTHON, WMBWilliams to build and operate PDH facility in Alberta, Canada
Williams (WMB) announced that it has sanctioned construction of a propane dehydrogenation, or PDH, facility in Alberta, Canada. The new PDH facility, the first and only in Canada, will allow Williams to significantly increase production of polymer-grade propylene from its Canadian operations. Williams is the only company in Canada currently producing polymer-grade propylene, a valuable petrochemical feedstock used in plastics manufacturing. The company estimates capital expenditures of up to C$900M to be funded with expected cash flow from its Canadian operation and international cash on hand. Pending appropriate permitting approvals, the PDH facility is scheduled to go into service in the second quarter of 2016. Williams has selected Honeywell’s (HON) UOP as the vendor to provide the UOP Oleflex process technology for the dehydrogenation process.
