Saudi Polymers will bring online its new integrated polyolefins complex in Jubail

October 06/2011

(Platts) -- Saudi Polymers will bring online its new integrated polyolefins complex in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, within a month -- pending ongoing safety checks -- a source close to the company said Tuesday. "The complex can start up anytime now," said the source. "It's undergoing safety procedures and checks."


The complex is built around an ethane/propane-based steam cracker, with the capacity to produce 1.165 million mt/year of ethylene and 445,000 mt/year of propylene. The entire olefins production is slated for captive use.


Saudi Arabian petrochemical producers are weaning off from their dependence on gas feedstocks due to tightening supply. The next major petrochemicals project on the table by Dow and Saudi Aramco, called Sadara, involves building a world-scale steam cracker that will be able to use a range of feedstocks when it comes online in 2014.


Downstream from the steam cracker, Saudi Polymers has a 1.1 million mt/year high density polyethylene plant, a 400,000 mt/year polypropylene plant and a 200,000 mt/year polystyrene plant at the new complex.
