Amec Foster Wheeler will design two pipelines carrying ethylene oxide and propylene oxide, used in making detergents and plastics, from Sadara's plants to the PlasChem industrial park.

PlasChem park, located in the Jubail Industrial City, is a part of Saudi Arabia's efforts to expand its downstream portfolio and drive greater value from petrochemical and refined products.

The government has struck a slew of deals with international companies to build refineries and supply feedstock to cash in on the demand for petrochemical products in developing countries.

“We will be building a transport system for EO and PO that is second to none in the entire MENA region. This is a major milestone for the development of one of the most attractive clusters in PlasChem Park. The EO/PO transportation system will be commissioned just in time for the first wave of our EO and PO cluster investors and will provide a great incentive for EO and PO investors to locate in PlasChem Park,” Faisal Al-Faqeer, Sadara CEO, said.

Sadara is a joint venture between state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco and chemicals giant Dow Chemical Company.
