The only fully-fledged petrochemical complex in Nigeria is the Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Company Limited. The other plants are integrated with the petroleum refineries.
Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Company Limited
The Indorama Eleme Petrochemicals Company Limited (IEPL), formerly known as Eleme petrochemicals Company Limited (EPCL) was acquired in 2006 from the NNPC during the privatization program by Indorama as the Core investors.
The complex is located at Eleme, Rivers State, and has 22,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) Butene-1, 270,000 TPA Polyethylene, and 80,000 TPA Polypropylene plants that process natural gas liquids (NGL) from Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) and propylene-rich feed from Port Harcourt refinery to produce a range of Polyethylene and Polypropylene products.
IEPL rehabilitated the previously under utilized plant, and through prudent management has over the years stabilized petrochemicals production and is on the verge of expanding the plant complex.
