BP licenses its latest generation PTA technology in Turkey
BP and SOCAR TURKEY ENERJI A.Ş (SOCAR Turkey) have entered into a licensing agreement for BP’s latest generation purified terephthalic acid (PTA) technology.

SOCAR Turkey intends to deploy the technology in its new 900,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) unit at Aliağa, Turkey, expected to come on stream by 2023 once the final investment decision is taken.

“BP is committed to providing products and solutions to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint. We are proud to build on BP’s long-standing relationship with SOCAR Turkey to license and deploy this technology into their facility in Turkey. This is a testimony to the advantages of BP’s technology,” said Rita Griffin, chief operating officer, BP Petrochemicals.

Emil Eminov, SOCAR Turkey chief operating officer, said: “This investment is highly strategic for us, fulfilling our intent to create a value chain by integrating our newly-announced aromatics complex adjacent to the STAR refinery and PETKİM plant in Aliağa with the most competitive PTA technology. This will create the most competitive asset in Turkey and the Middle East and will serve the high demand for PTA in Turkey and surrounding regions.”

BP Petrochemicals’ PTA technology has significantly lower capital and operating costs when compared with other PTA technologies. The technology is more energy efficient, uses less water and produces less solid waste than similar technologies on the market. BP Petrochemicals continues to invest in proprietary PTA technology to maintain its position as a market leader and technology of choice. New innovations are available to licensees.

Notes:

- PTA is the primary feedstock for polyesters used in the textile and packaging industry.

- BP’s global petrochemicals business had total (net to BP) capacity in 2016 of 18.6 million tpa including 6.2 million tpa of PTA production. BP’s PTA technology was originally developed in the USA in the 1950s and through successive iterations has continued to improve in terms of its capital and operating costs.

- SOCAR TURKEY ENERJI A.Ş (SOCAR Turkey) is a subsidiary of SOCAR, the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic, and is Turkey’s largest international investor with multiple investments in the energy area.

- SOCAR Turkey’s investments include: PETKİM, Turkey’s leading petrochemicals manufacturer; STAR Refinery, which is due to begin operations in 2018; and PETLİM, the largest container port on Turkey’s Aegean Sea coast. SOCAR Turkey intends to construct a new aromatics unit to produce paraxylene (PX) unit adjacent to the newly-constructed STAR refinery located in Aliağa.
