The worldscale facility on Jurong Island will produce 550 000 tonne/year of SM and 250 000 tonne/year of PO when it comes onstream in 2001.
Speculation that the partners may abandon the project because of overcapacity in the region was dismissed by BASF at a news conference here.
John Feldman, president, BASF South East Asia Pte Ltd, said: "We are confident the project will go ahead as planned, and that the deal will be signed by mid-1999."
