BRASKEM ANNOUNCES CONTRACT WITH PETROBRAS FOR SUPPLY OF PROPYLENE UNDER COMPETITIVE CONDITIONS

São Paulo, Brazil, April 3rd 2007 --- Braskem (BOVESPA: BRKM5; NYSE: BAK; LATIBEX: XBRK), Latin America’s leader in thermoplastic resins and the country’s second largest in industrial company owned by the private sector announces that it just signed a contract with Refinaria Alberto Pasqualini (Refap S/A), located in Canoas/RS, for initial supply of 70 thousand tons of propylene per year, which may exceed 100 thousand tons per year with the forecasted production increases in the refinery. The initiative, which marks the entry of Refap as a supplier of raw materials to the petrochemical sector, will provide important competitivity and strategic flexibility gains to Braskem, which just expanded its share in the country’s southern region, with the acquisition of petrochemical businesses from Ipiranga in a partnership with Petrobras, including the controlling stake of Copesul.

“This agreement establishes an important partnership in the long term relationship between Braskem and Refap, and will be key in the completion of future projects aimed at expanding the company’s polypropylene units”, says Braskem’s Poliolefines Vice President Luiz de Mendonça. In addition, it reinforces the strategic partnership with Petrobras, already accomplished through Petroquímica Paulínia’s project, and now with Petroquímica Ipiranga.

As a consequence of the acquisition of Ipiranga Petroquímica’s businesses jointly with Petrobras, Braskem plans to invest approximately R$ 700 million in projects aimed at expanding its industrial units in the Triunfo Complex until 2009, besides investments already announced in other assets.

The contract with Refap foresees the initial supply of 5.8 thousand tons of propylene per month. This volume will complement the supply of the company’s current units in the Triunfo Complex, and guarantee the supply of raw materials for future expansions. Propylene will be delivered to Braskem through a pipeline, which ensures security and continuity in the raw material’s supply.

The establishment of this contract is part of Braskem strategy of consolidating its leading position in the market of polypropylene, a resin that presents the highest demand growth rates both in the Brazilian and international markets.

Braskem, a world-class Brazilian petrochemical company, is a leader in thermoplastic resins in Latin America, and the country’s second largest in industrial company owned by the private sector. With 14 industrial plants located in the country, the company has an annual production capacity of 6.1 million tons of chemicals and petrochemicals.
