Amec Foster Wheeler wins Saudi pipeline contract

RIYADH, May 29, 2018

Sadara Chemical Company, a joint venture between state oil giant Saudi Aramco and global chemicals major Dow Chemical Company, has signed up Amec Foster Wheeler, a leading engineering and project management company, for the construction of two gas pipelines at the PlasChem park, located in the Jubail Industrial City.

PlasChem Park is a 12-sq-km industrial facility dedicated to downstream chemical and conversion industries. It is a key element differentiating Sadara from other petrochemical, chemical and plastics manufacturing projects in Saudi Arabia.

As per the deal, Amec Foster Wheeler will design two pipelines carrying ethylene oxide and propylene oxide, used in making detergents and plastics, from Sadara's plants to the PlasChem industrial park.

Sadara's PlasChem Park is uniquely positioned to enable and support downstream opportunities in many market segments, including the Hydrocarbon Resin Cluster, Ethylene Oxide/Propylene Oxide (EO/PO) Cluster, Polyurethane Cluster and a Plastics Cluster.

These clusters are designed to attract diversified investments into PlasChem Park for downstream applications such as the production of oil and gas chemicals, construction materials, auto components, animal feed, paints and coatings, as well as home and personal care products.

Sadara CEO Faisal Al Faqeer said: "We will be building a transport system for EO/PO that is second to none in the entire Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region. This is a major milestone for the development of one of the most attractive clusters in PlasChem Park."

"This transportation system will be commissioned just in time for the first wave of our EO/PO cluster investors and will provide a great incentive for them to locate to PlasChem Park," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
