Borouge has awarded TechnipFMC, Maire Tecnimont and WorleyParsons three major contracts in February 2019 for the fourth phase of the Ruwais petrochemicals complex, which will include the world’s largest mixed feed cracker. In a ceremony held in Abu Dhabi, Borouge signed the FEED contract, project management contract and licence contract associated with the mixed feed cracker complex.
The contracts were signed by Ahmed Omar Abdulla, CEO, Borouge, Marco Villa, president EMIA, TechnipFMC, and Pierroberto Folgiero, group CEO, Maire Tecnimont, in the presence of Abdulaziz Alhajri, executive director, Downstream Directorate, ADNOC, and Alfred Stern, chief executive, Borealis.
The mixed feed cracker will be the 4th cracker in the Borouge complex and will be the world’s largest with 1.8 million tonnes ethylene output.
It will have overall capacity to produce 3.3 million tonnes of olefins and aromatics, using a variety of feedstocks such as ethane, butane and naphtha coming from ADNOC’s refinery and gas processing facilities. One of the tangible benefits of the investment is its contribution to enhancing the In-Country Value proposition.
It is expected to generate over $3.5bn local procurement and construction activities during its EPC phase. The project will generate new business and revenue opportunities for local companies in the UAE.
