Jurong Consultants would like to make its contribution in this project, participate in its implementation and creation of a petrochemical cluster, Tan Wooi Leong said.
Miklushevsky proposed to the Singaporean company to act as a consultant in creation of the cluster, the press service of regional authorities told ITAR-TASS. “Jurong Consultants would be able to participate in implementing other major Primorsky projects” in the future, the regional chief executive said.
He noted that grounds where productions would be situated were within international transport corridor Primorye-1 which connected north-eastern Chinese provinces and ports on Primorsky eastern coast.
Miklushevsky noted that it was an opportunity for export by land to north-eastern Chinese provinces and by sea to port Vostochny.
“We have several projects for development of this port,” he added.
The annual capacity of a petrochemical cluster which is being designed makes 30 million tonnes of oil, preliminary cost of first and second stages of the project makes 659 billion roubles ($19.3 billion). First stage of the complex is planned to commission in 2020, second phase in 2022. The project yield is expected to exceed on trillion roubles ($29.4 billion). Meanwhile, around 100 thousand jobs will be created in Primorsky Territory.The enterprise is planned to produce monoethylene glycol, polyethylene, polypropylene, aromatic hydrocarbons and ethyl benzene. Crude delivered through East Siberia-Pacific oil pipeline will be used as raw materials. A major part of produce is expected to be delivered for export to Asia-Pacific regional countries.
