Petrotahlil - Borouge, a leading petrochemicals company that provides innovative, value creating plastics solutions, has awarded TechnipFMC, Maire Tecnimont and WorleyParsons three major contracts for the fourth phase of the Ruwais petrochemicals complex which will include the world’s largest mixed feed cracker.
The mixed feed cracker will be the 4th cracker in the Borouge complex and will be the world’s largest with 1.8 million t Ethylene output. It will have overall capacity to produce 3.3 million t of olefins and aromatics using a variety of feedstocks such as Ethane, Butane and Naphtha coming from ADNOC’s refinery and gas processing facilities. Both ADNOC and Borealis intend to finalise the downstream configuration within three months, following the FEED award.
The introduction of new and additional feedstocks and products to be produced by the plant supports the Abu Dhabi, Borouge and ADNOC 2030 strategies, by creating a platform for future industrial development and diversification of the economy and contributing to ensuring a more profitable downstream business.
