SPECIAL REPORT: Tacaamol plant to get commercial bids in July.

Abu Dhabi Chemicals Integration Company (Tacaamol), a 51:49 joint venture (JV) between Abu Dhabi National Chemicals Company (ChemaWEyaat) and Indorama Ventures Public Company, has revealed that it will receive commercial bids for the construction of its aromatics plant in July.

Technical bids on the $800 million project had already been submitted in late 2014 by Technip, Samsung Engineering, GS Engineering & Construction and the JV of Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and Bechtel. Tacaamol has revealed plans to award the process license, engineering, procurement and construction (LEPC) contract in October 2015.

Located in the Taweelah district in Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia (MCAG), east of the Ruwais industrial complex, Abu Dhabi, Tacaamol aromatics plant will be a world class facility producing three million tonnes per year (mtpy) of heavy and medium naphtha supplied via pipeline by Abu Dhabi Oil Refining Company's (Takreer) refinery in Ruwais.

The naphtha feedstock will then be used to produce 1.4 mtpy of paraxylene and 0.5 mtpy of benzene. Furthermore, the aromatics plant will also produce mixed xylenes like toluene, orthoxylene and meta-xylene from the integrated BTX units, as well as cumene, glycols, phenol, export LPG and light naphtha.

The project is part of ChemaWEyaat's bigger plans to build a major chemicals hub in the Taweelah district of Al Gharbia in Abu Dhabi.

The MCAG site will include aromatics, olefins, propylene, ethylene and nitrogen chemicals complexes.

In order to make it more reasonable, ChemaWEyaat has divided the project into three phases with an approximate investment of $20 to 25 billion. The first phase of this scheme is the construction of the aromatics complex.
