BP agrees sale of interest in SECCO to Sinopec


BP today announced that it has agreed to sell its 50% stake in the Shanghai SECCO Petrochemical Company Limited (SECCO) to Gaoqiao Petrochemical Co Ltd, a 100% subsidiary of China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec), BP's joint venture partner, for a total consideration of $1.68 billion. 

“This decision aligns our petrochemicals business in China with our global focus on areas where BP has leading proprietary technologies and competitive advantage. China is a key region for our chemicals business and BP will continue to look for opportunities to build on our position in the country,” said Rita Griffin, chief operating officer, BP Global Petrochemicals. 

SECCO is currently owned by BP (50%), Sinopec (30%) and Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company Limited (20%), in which Sinopec holds a majority interest. Based in Shanghai, SECCO is a major producer of olefins - ethylene and propylene - together with polymers and other derivatives including polyethylene, polypropylene, acrylonitrile styrene, polystyrene, butadiene and other products. 

“China is a country of great significance to BP given its market potential,” said Dr. Xiaoping Yang, BP China president, “BP has been committed to doing business in China for more than four decades. Looking into the future, we plan to continue to invest in China in areas that provide the best growth opportunities for BP, our Chinese partners and the country.”
