Total will ship ethane into its Antwerp complex from Norway.

The French oil company Total has upgraded one of two steam crackers at its site in Antwerp, Belgium, to use ethane as a raw material. Ethane, butane, and naphtha are all now potential feedstocks for the plant, the company says. The upgrade is part of a $60 million project that includes adapting the site’s terminal to import up to 200,000 metric tons of ethane per year by ship from Norway.
