Trial operations at Sahara Petrochemicals Co.’s (SPC) butanol plant are set to begin in the fourth quarter of this year, the company said in a statement to Tadawul on Wednesday.
During this phase, tests will be carried out on equipment, plant operations and production efficiency through technical licensing and contracts.
The company added that the related financial impact is “difficult now to measure” due to “its relation to the changes in energy prices.”
The facility will produce 330,000 metric tons of n-butanol per annum and 11,000 metric tons of iso-butanol when it comes online.
The project is a joint venture equally owned by Sadara Chemicals Co., Saudi Kayan Petrochemicals Co. and Saudi Acrylic Acid Co. (SAAC).
Sahara owns 43.16 percent of SAAC.
