SATORP - Amiral Petrochemical Complex Package 1 - Mixed Feed Cracker
Saudi Aramco and Totalenergies plan to build a petrochemical complex in Jubail, Saudi Arabia which would supply more than $4 billion of downstream derivatives and specialty chemicals. The new complex will be integrated with Satorp Refinery. The two giants plan to produce 1.5 metric tonnes annually (mta) of ethylene. Other high-value chemicals are in consideration to reach an overall output of 2.7 mta. The Amiral derivatives complex will also host other chemical plants that will draw on feedstock from the proposed Satorp petrochemicals project to produce a variety of specialty chemicals and other downstream derivative products. This world-class complex also fits with the strategy to expand in petrochemicals by maximising the synergies within major platforms, leveraging low-cost feedstocks and taking advantage of the fast-growing Asian polymer market.
