Intratec recent publication reveals that the United States can be a profitable place for a PDH plant, due to the rise of shale gas. Also, scrutinizes the economics surrounding propylene production via propane dehydrogenation of an industrial unit, based on a process similar to UOP Oleflex technology, in its newest publication Propylene Production via Propane Dehydrogenation.

    • United States can be the most profitable place for a Propane Dehydrogenation UnitDue to the rise of shale gas, the US presents the most advantageous operational margins for a PDH plant,unveils Intratec’s recent publication.Houston, TX – According to a recent publication produced by Intratec Solutions LLC (www.intratec.us), a Houstonpublisher and chemical process consulting firm, the US presents the most attractive return of investment onproducing propylene via propane dehydrogenation, based in a study of a 550 kta plant using a process technologysimilar to UOP Oleflex ™. The tight propylene market contributed to the rising of new and novel lower-cost chemical processes for on-purpose propylene production technologies and Propane Dehydrogenation (PDH) technology stands out due to the use of low-cost raw materials. According to the report, in comparison to Brazil and China, the US Gulf Coast Plant presents the most advantageous operational margins, with an EBITDA margin of 32%, due to the availability of low price propane, obtained from the rise of shale gas, which justifies Dow Chemical’s choice for a new PDH plant in Texas. The publication Propylene Production via Propane Dehydrogenation, Q2 2012, presents the analysis of a plant fully integrated with a petrochemical complex and capable of producing 550 kta of polymer- grade propylene on the US Gulf Coast, evaluating the CAPEX of such industrial unit in USD 490 million. The internal rate of return is calculated on more than 25% per year in US, as well as in China.Propylene Production via Propane Dehydrogenation is part of the Technology Economics Program (TEC), and isavailable at established distribution channels like Amazon.com and HP Magcloud. The report is also offered indigital format at Intratec’s website, at an introductory price of US$ 829.
