JG Summit Olefins Corporation (JGSOC) is a pioneer in the petrochemical industry in the Philippines, with its fully integrated manufacturing complex in Batangas City. Previously there were two subsidiaries, JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation (JGSPC) established in 1994, which operated the polymer (acilities, and JGSOC established in 2008, which operates the naphtha cracker plant. These two companies were collectively known as the JG Summit Petrochemicals Group (JGSPG). As of January 1, 2022, the two companies have been merged to a single corporate entity, with JGSOC as the surviving entity of the merger.
JGSOC operates the first and only naphtha cracker plant in the country, which produces the olefin raw materials ethylene and propylene used as feedstock by the downstream polymer plants. The cracker’s products also include mixed C4 and pyrolysis gasoline or ’pygas’, which are in turn the raw materials to produce C4 olefins and aromatics products from its butadiene and aromatics extraction plants, respectively.
The olefin raw materials ethylene and propylene are used as feedstock to produce polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) from the company’s polymer plants. As the largest manufacturer of polyolefins in the Philippines, JGSOC markets its world-class quality PE and PP resins under the brand name EVALENE® which is a dominant player in the local resins market and is likewise distributed in more than 30 countries all over the world.
A new aromatics extraction unit, which started operations in 2021, produces benzene, toluene, mixed xylenes and mixed aromatics using the cracker’s pygas as its feedstock.
In March 2022, JGSOC has started commercial operations of the first and only butadiene extraction unit in the Philippines, which uses BASF Process licensed from Lummus Technology. This facility processes mixed C4 from the naphtha cracker to produce butadiene and raffinate-1.
By end of 2022, JGSOC will also start to commission its new 250 kTA PE plant which will use the MarTECH TM loop slurry process, licensed by Chevron Phillips Chemical. The MarTECH TM loop slurry process is also one of the world’s leading processes for the manufacture of PE, and which will allow JGSOC to produce bimodal, metallocene and bimodal metallocene PE grades.
JGSOC adheres to an Integrated Management System which encompasses the Quality Management System under ISO 9001:2015, the Environmental Management System under ISO 14001:2015, and the Occupational Health and Safety Management System under ISO 45001:2018.
