Singapore’s Top Coke & Petrochemical Companies | SGPGrid

Top Coke and Petrochemical Companies in Singapore

While Singapore has no hydrocarbon resources of its own, it is still a hub within Southeast Asia with the artificial Jurong Island being the centrepiece when it comes to petrochemicals and refining. The superb infrastructure means that it is one of the most efficient plants of its kind in the world. The energy industry, including coke and petrochemicals, contributes around 3% to Singapore’s annual GDP.

The coke and petrochemical industry, particularly the petrochemical side, is continuing to expand. The Energy & Chemicals Industry Transformation Map (ITM)suggests that around 1,400 jobs and an additional $12.7 billion in connected revenue could be generated by 2025. The focus will be on creating new chemical plants and utilising advanced technology which can be used in the refining process to create speciality chemicals.

Coke and coal are still used in Singapore for energy production, although it only equates to around 1.2%. It is a figure which is to be anticipated when you consider the country’s heavy emphasis on “going green”. However, it is still an integral part of energy production and should not be overlooked.
