Sadara EO-PO pipeline work on schedule.

With the design phase completed, Sadara Chemical Company's EO/PO Pipeline Project, serving one of PlasChem Park's most attractive clusters, is continuing to move ahead on schedule, says Sadara CEO Dr Faisal Al-Faqeer.

"We broke ground on the project in March of this year. The EO/PO transportation system will be commissioned in time for the first wave of our EO (ethylene oxide) and PO (propylene oxide) cluster investors and will provide a strong incentive for similar investors to locate in PlasChem Park. The pipeline system will be second to none in the entire Mena region," Dr Al-Faqeer says in an exclusive interview with OGN .

The PlasChem Park is a key element differentiating Sadara from other petrochemical, chemical and plastics manufacturing projects in Saudi Arabia. It is uniquely positioned to enable and support downstream opportunities in many market segments, including the Hydrocarbon Resin, Ethylene Oxide/Propylene Oxide (EO/PO), Polyurethane and Plastics clusters, he says.

This year, three companies broke ground on their planned manufacturing facilities at PlasChem Park: Surfactant Detergents Company, Halliburton and Baker Hughes.

Referring to the attacks on Saudi Aramco's facilities, he says the interruption to Sadara feedstock supply from Saudi Aramco was very minor, amounting to an approximate average of 16 per cent.
