Sabic plans new petrochemicals plant in Jubail

Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic), a global leader in chemicals, plans to build a petrochemicals plant in the city of Jubail on the Gulf coast in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. This will be after a similar plant in South Korea starts production by year-end, CEO Yousef Abdullah Al-Benyan told Asharq TV.
Al-Benyan added that the company views the Korean market as a launch pad to expand in Asia.
The announcement came as Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince held talks with the President of South Korea at the Al-Yamamah Palace in Riyadh.
During their meeting, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Moon Jae-in reviewed bilateral relations between the two countries and ways to support and enhance them in all fields.
