In the latest in a string of potential propylene investments, the hydrocarbon-processing firm Williams Companies is studying the construction of a propane dehydrogenation unit in Alberta.

The plant would have 1 billion lb per year of propylene capacity and cost between $600 million and $800 million to build. The propane feedstock for the plant would come from the off-gases of oil sands. Williams plans to ship the propylene to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
