According to the report, some major companies, including Dow Chemical and Enterprise Products, are building Propane Dehydrogenation (PDH) plants to take advantage of shale gas, the fastest growing source of low-cost gas in the US. This advent provides a high propane availability, which reduces its cost and leads to a feedstock advantage to plants erected in the United States.
In Middle East, the propane output is expected to be capable of supplying not only domestic needs, but also the demand from China, where many PDH projects are scheduled to go on stream within the next few years.
Besides the United States, both the capital investment and the operating costs are also presented for plants constructed in Brazil and China. The estimated CAPEX for such plant in the US Gulf Coast is USD 492 million, a value lower than China. Nonetheless, the attractiveness of propane dehydrogenation in the US is proven by the calculated internal rate of return of above 30% in the country.
Propylene Production via Propane Dehydrogenation, Part 2 is part of the Technology Economics Program (TEC), and is available at established distribution channels like Amazon.com and HP Magcloud. The report is also offered in digital format at Intratec’s website, at an introductory price of US$ 829. A preview of the publication can be found at: http://www.intratec.us/
