Williams is proceeding to the next phase of development with its planned propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility located near Edmonton, Alberta. The plant will have a capacity of 525 KTA of polymer grade propylene production and will use low-cost, locally sourced propane as its feedstock.
Concurrently, Williams has signed an agreement with privately held North American Polypropylene (NAPP). NAPP is an affiliate of Goradia Capital, a private equity global developer of projects and marketer of petrochemical products.
In the agreement, NAPP will purchase 450 KTA of propylene on a 25-year term firm fee for service basis for the production of homopolymer polypropylene, a recyclable plastic used widely in many consumer and industrial products. NAPP’s project will be based on UNIPOL™ polypropylene technology and will be co-located on the same site as Williams’ PDH unit.
