Mustang providing process control for ExxonMobil in Singapore

HOUSTON, TEXAS - Mustang Engineering has been authorized by ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (“ExxonMobil”) to proceed with the detailed engineering design and site construction management for the process control of a second world-scale steam cracker complex in Singapore. The project will be integrated with the existing Singapore site, providing feedstock, operating and investment synergies with both the chemical plant and refinery.

The project will employ ExxonMobil’s latest proprietary technologies, enabling a broad range of feedstocks to be processed and converted into higher-value products. The new petrochemical project will include a world-scale, one million tons-per-year ethylene cracker, two 650,000 tons-per-year polyethylene units, a 450,000 tons-per-year polypropylene unit, a 300,000 tons-per-year specialty elastomers unit, an aromatics extraction unit to produce 340,000 tons-per-year of benzene and an oxo-alcohol expansion of 125,000 tons-per-year. Project start-up is expected in early 2011.

In addition to providing process controls for the new facility, Mustang has been awarded the upgrade of the process controls of the existing steam cracker complex. In 2006, Mustang completed the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract awarded by ExxonMobil for process control, which has been used to successfully launch the detailed design of this project.
