LLC (BTP) joint venture (40% owned by Total, 60% owned by BASF) have revamped
the Port Arthur Steam Cracker in Texas to process ethane from Shale gas.
Patrick Pouyanné, President of Total Refining & Chemicals, said, "Our strategy
in the United States consists of consolidating our production base by taking
advantage of market trends." He added, "The Port Arthur steam cracker is one
of the biggest in the world, with a capacity of 1 million tons of ethylene per
year. It was commissioned in 2001 to process naphtha, distilled from
petroleum. In response to petroleum product price hike and the emergence of
abundant gas resources, we adapted the steam cracker to give it flexibility
and maintain its competitiveness. It can now use as a feedstock ethane, which
costs around $30 per barrel of oil equivalent (boe) - versus around $100/boe
for naphtha - and liquefied petroleum gases such as butane and propane, which
are also cheaper." The Full Research Report on Total SA - including full
detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to
