Base & commodity chemicals

Global economic growth is driving strong demand for petrochemicals. Bureau Veritas helps producers construct and operate their assets efficiently, and guarantee the quality of their products.

Maintaining efficient production

Your challenges

Investment in petrochemicals infrastructure is buoyant. National oil companies are diversifying by investing in petrochemicals plants and complexes, while established chemicals companies are consolidating to stay competitive. All petrochemicals producers need to ensure their facilities are safe, compliant and built to last. They also seek to avoid costly shutdowns, and ensure the quality of both the feedstock they use as raw materials and the chemicals products they sell.
