Sabic and OQ begin study for petrochemical project in Oman’s SEZAD

Project involves a steam cracker unit and derivative units providing olefins derivatives

Sabic has inked a deal with petroleum investment company OQ to support a study for developing a petrochemical project in the Special Economic Zone of Duqm (SEZAD) in Oman.

According to a statement, the non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) lays the preliminary and indicative terms for the potential study, and expresses the intentions of the two sides to discuss and assess the feasibility of the project.

“We are honored to sign this MoU with OQ as our focus has always been on key collaborations and on building fruitful relationships for sustainable growth, regionally and globally. With our diverse global portfolio, along with our manufacturing competencies, we are confident of helping to drive the development of downstream industries in Oman, just as we are currently a key enabler in the achievement of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 objectives,” said Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh, executive vice president, Petrochemicals, who signed on behalf of Sabic.

The project involves a world-scale steam cracker unit (SCU) and derivatives units producing olefins derivatives (ethylene and propylene), which are expected to utilise the feedstock by-products from the SCU, the statement concluded.
