The local Arabian Industrial Development Company (Nama) is preparing to double epoxy production at its Jubail Chemical Industries Company (Jana) subsidiary. Detailed engineering work is nearing completion and prequalification for the main construction package is expected to start soon. The project involves increasing epoxy production from the plant by 30,000 tonnes a year (t/y) to 60,000 t/y by the end of next year. Epichlorohydrin (ECH) feedstock will be supplied by Nama subsidiary Hassad Petrochemical Company, which is developing a 250,000-t/y chlorine, caustic soda, hydrogen chloride, calcium chloride and ECH plant in Jubail. Diphenolic acid (DPA) feedstock will be either sourced locally or imported. Engineering has been carried out in-house with the assistance of Italy’s Saipem.
