ExxonMobil starts Singapore chemical complex after expansion

SINGAPORE, May 30 (Reuters) - ExxonMobil said on Thursday it has started ethylene production at a new chemical unit in Singapore after expansion.

With the start-up of the steam cracker, the company will increase production at other petrochemical units in the Singapore complex over the next few weeks, it said in an emailed statement.

Ethylene is a feedstock for producing polymers used in plastics production.
