Borouge lets Ruwais polymer unit contracts

By OGJ editors
-- Borouge, a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. and Borealis, Vienna, has let three major contracts in the expansion of its petrochemicals complex at Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

The expansion will boost total polyolefins capacity of the complex to 4.5 million tonnes/year by the end of 2013. Linde Group has a contract for construction of a 1.5-million tpy ethane cracker, which will join a cracker of similar size and another with capacity of 600,000 tpy already in place (OGJ, July 6, 2009, Newsletter).

In the latest awards, Borouge let two engineering, procurement, and construction contracts to a JV of Technimont of Italy and Samsung Engineering of South Korea.

One of the contracts, worth $1.255 billion, covers two enhanced polyethylene (PE) and two enhanced polypropylene (PP) units based on Borealis’s Borstar technology. The PE units will add 1.08 million tpy of capacity, and the PP units, 960,000 tpy. The other contract, worth $400 million, is for a 350,000-tpy low-density PE unit.

A third EPC contract, worth $935 million, went to Hyundai Engineering & Construction for utilities and offsite facilities.
