By OGJ editors

Abu Dhabi National Chemicals Co. has let a contract to Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering & Construction Group covering production management consultancy services for an aromatics complex at Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

The complex will convert almost 3 million tonnes/year of heavy and medium naphtha from the 350,000-b/d Takreer Ruwais refinery into paraxylene, mixed xylenes, and benzene.

It will be built in the chemical company’s Madeenat Al Gharbia site.
