Saudi Kayan halts operations at Al-Jubail plants due to failure

May 11/2012

(yarnsandfibers) -- Saudi Kayan Petrochemical on 9 May stopped production at some of its plants at Al-Jubail in Saudi Arabia because of a technical failure, the producer said on Wednesday.

Among the plants that were taken off line are those producing high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and ethylene glycol (EG), the company said.

Saudi Kayan has a 400,000 tonne/year HDPE plant, a 350,000 tonne/year PP plant in Al-Jubail and a 650,000 tonne/year EG plant at the site.

The company also has an ethylene capacity of 1.48m tonnes/year at the site. Saudi Kayan is 35%-owned by Saudi petrochemical giant SABIC.
