Project is being implemented to produce synthetic rubbers and isobutane using the available gas resources from the Tengiz field as a feedstock for subsequent marketing of products in the domestic and export markets.
The project configuration involves the construction of plants for processing of Tengizchevroil LLP’s butane mixture and its separation into isobutane and n-butane, used to produce synthetic rubbers and other petrochemical products:
- styrene-butadiene-styrene - up to 38 thousand tons annually;
- divinyl-styrene-synthetic rubber - up to 45 thousand tons annually;- isobutane-isobutylene fraction - up to 130 thousand tons annually;
- methyl tert-butyl ether - up to 57 thousand tons annually;
- butadiene - up to 66 thousand tons annually.
The project feedstock is a mixture of butanes to be supplied from the Tengiz field in the amount of 380 thousand tons annually.
