SECCO Ups Production

SHANGHAI SECCO Petrochemical Co, half owned by British oil giant BP Plc, successfully expanded its ethylene plant capacity by 21 percent yesterday.

SECCO's designed ethylene production capacity is now 1.09 million tons a year, up from the initial 900,000 tons, and remains the largest single cracker in China, the company said. A cracker makes ethylene, the building block of plastics and synthetic fibers.

The first batch of products, after an about 50-day shutdown for maintenance and expansion, were produced yesterday morning, SECCO said.

Sinopec Corp owns a 30-percent stake, and Shanghai Petrochemical Co has 20 percent of SECCO.
