JG Summit Petrochemicals Group
JG Summit is a pioneer in the petrochemical industry in the Philippines, having two wholly-owned petrochemical investments operating in its 250-hectare fully integrated world-class manufacturing complex in Batangas City, around 120 km south of Manila. These subsidiaries, JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation (JGSPC) and JG Summit Olefins Corporation (JGSOC), are collectively known as the JG Summit Petrochemicals Group (JGSPG).
JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation (JGSPC) is the largest manufacturer of polyolefins in the Philippines, with current rated production capacities of 320,000 metric tons per annum (MTA) for polyethylene (PE) and 190,000 MTA of polypropylene (PP). JGSPC uses UNIPOLTM polymer production technology, known for its safety, operational stability, cost-effectiveness and versatility.
Operational since August 1998, JGSPC markets its world-class quality PE and PP resins under the brand name EVALENETM. EVALENETM is a dominant player in the local resins market, and is also distributed in more than 30 countries all over the world.

JG Summit Olefins Corporation (JGSOC) operates the first and only naphtha cracker plant in the country. It uses LummusTM Olefins Conversion Technology in manufacturing 320,000 MTA of polymer-grade ethylene and 190,000 MTA of polymer-grade propylene, which are used as feedstock by the downstream polymer plants operated by JGSPC. The cracker’s products also include pygas and mixed C4, which in turn are raw materials used to manufacture intermediate chemicals such as benzene, toluene, mixed xylenes and butadiene.
Since the start of the cracker’s commercial operations in November 2014, JGSPC’s olefins requirements, rather than being imported, have now been primarily supplied by JGSOC. This ensures supply stability and competitiveness of JGSPC’s PE and PP resins, which are widely used not only by the domestic plastics industry but also by other plastic products manufacturers worldwide.
Both JGSPC and JGSOC operate under strict adherence to quality, safety and environmental management systems certified to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001: 2007 standards.
Currently ongoing is JGSPG’s expansion project for the petrochemical complex, which shall increase existing capacities as well as provide for new production units, as follows:
- Increase in capacity for the existing naphtha cracker plant, to 480,000 MTA as ethylene and 240,000 MTA as propylene;
- Increase in capacity for the existing PP plant, to 300,000 MTA;
- A new butadiene extraction unit, to produce 70,000 MTA butadiene and 89,000 MTA raffinate-1;
- A new aromatics extraction unit, to produce 126,000 MTA of benzene, 76,000 MTA of toluene and 46,000 MTA of mixed xylenes; and
- A new bimodal PE plant using Chevron Phillip’s MarTECH™ loop slurry polymerization technology.
In 2019, construction will already be in full swing for all the new and expanded units, with commercial operations for the expanded complex targeted to commence by 2020.
The expansion project, with its additional volumes and new downstream value-added products, is a step towards product diversification of the Philippine petrochemical industry, and aims to strengthen further the industrial value chain for the various domestic manufacturing sectors.
