Canadian company Pembina Pipeline Corp. says it is going ahead with a $4.5-billion joint venture with Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Co. to build an integrated propane dehydrogenation plant and polypropylene upgrading facility northeast of Edmonton.

The project to turn propane into plastic will help deliver world prices to land-locked western Canadian oil and gas producers, CBC reported.

The plants’ plastic pellets will be sent by rail and shipping containers to manufacturers around the world to be turned into recyclable products used in automobiles, medical devices, food packaging and home electronic appliances.

“Sanctioning of the PDH/PP facility is the largest step taken to date by Pembina in executing its strategy to secure global market prices for customers’ hydrocarbons produced in Western Canada, and provides another exciting platform for future growth,” said Pembina CEO Mick Dilger in a news release.

Petrochemical Industries CEO Mohammed Abdullatif Al-Farhoud added in the same release that the facility is “ideally aligned with PIC’s continued pursuit of sustainable and globally diversified growth.”
