Sadara Chemical begins construction at its pipeline project
Sadara Chemical Co. (Sadara) on Sunday has launched construction works at its Ethylene Oxide (EO) and Propylene Oxide (PO) pipeline project, which will serve a key industrial cluster in PlasChem Park, the company said in a statement.
The system will distribute EO and PO to PlasChem Park investors, who will receive these feeds and other inputs to produce a variety of diversified specialty products, such as oil and gas field chemicals, construction materials, detergents, home and personal care products, water treatment chemicals, mining chemicals, coating and paint applications, pharmaceutical goods and animal feed.
“The EO/PO transportation system will be commissioned in time for the first wave of our EO and PO cluster investors and will provide a strong incentive for similar investors to locate in PlasChem Park. The pipeline system will be second to none in the entire MENA region,” said Sadara’s chief executive officer Faisal Al-Faqeer.
In May 2018, Sadara signed a detailed engineering contract with Amec Foster Wheeler and Partners Engineering Co. – Al Khobar for the design, engineering, material specifications and procurement for two 7-kilometer special material pipelines to transport EO and PO from Sadara plants to PlasChem Park.
PlasChem Park, a collaborative effort between Sadara and the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu (RCJY), is a 12 km² industrial park in Jubail Industrial City II, according to data available on Argaam.
Sadara is a joint venture developed by the Saudi Aramco and The Dow Chemical Company.
