33= Jubail New Petrochemical Complex
This project replaces
another plastics and chemicals production complex that Saudi Aramco and Dow Chemical Company had planned to develop at Ras Tanura.
That scheme was cancelled in April 2010 and moved to Jubail Industrial City. The change of location will allow cost savings of up to 40 per cent as the Royal Commission for Jubail & Yanbu will provide the basic infrastructure needed for the project.
The complex will use ethane gas from the Jubail export refinery being built by Saudi Aramco Total Refining & Petrochemicals Company (Satorp).
Although questions remain over whether Sabic can execute its massive oil-to-chemicals project alone, the pioneering scheme could revolutionise the regional petrochemicals industry
