Adnoc, Borealis begin work on Borouge 4 complex

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and Austrian chemicals producer Borealis have started construction of the fourth Borouge facility within the polyolefin manufacturing complex in Ruwais. 
The plant will help to boost the local supply chain and meet the projected growth in demand for polyolefins in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia while providing critical feedstock to the Taz’iz Chemicals Industrial Chemicals Zone in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi Media Office said.
Abu Dhabi plans to triple its petrochemical production capacity from 4.5 million tonnes – currently produced entirely by Borouge in Ruwais – by 2025.
Borouge’s first polythene unit was commissioned in 2001 and its capacity is 450,000 tonnes per annum.
Borouge 2 and 3, commissioned in 2010 and 2014, raised the capacity to 2 million tonnes and 4.5 million tonnes of polyethylene and polypropylene per annum, respectively. Borouge 4 will increase the company’s overall polyolefin production to 6.4 million tonnes, making it the world’s largest single-site polyolefin complex.
