Polinter 1000 kta Ethylene Plant

I was checking Pequiven's website to get some reference about the new projects to be done in the 2007-2013 period. From the website it states the construction of a 1000 kta Ethylene Plant, but no more information about it.

Doing some research I found out that Linde Group is in charge of buidling the Ethylene Plant, and it has a very nice graph about it.

Remarkably, it set the completion date in 2015. So it is good news! we have a date!. Moreover, in the same presentation there is a sheet of typical cost of a Ethylene plant, very useful information for quick comparison and calculations.

This information was given in Linde's Olefin Academy presentation

The Caracas Chronicles Effect

The other day I was quite happy to be mentioned in one of my favorites blogs "Caracas Chronicles", mostly because I started this blog after being an avid reader of their own.

However, as the Dutch saying "Meten is weten" (To measure is to know), I want to show the impact of being referenced in Caracas Chronicles in my normal traffic.

As you can see in the graph above, it increased 20-fold the amount of people who get into my blog, having 60 visitors in one day! Hehe still way to go, but it is a very good motivation to keep working, and keep organizing the information available about petrochemical activities in Venezuela.

More posts to come!
