MOSCOW  – Borouge, a joint venture between Borealis and the Abu Dhabi National Oil company, plans to complete the construction of a new black polyethylene (PE) pipe plant in Ruwais, UAE in 2020, ICIS reports citing source in the company.

The new plant corresponds to the company’s goal – to double its production capacity of the material by 2030, the company said.

Details about the capacity of the plant and investment in the project were not disclosed.

“The company’s decision to expand the production capacity of black polyethylene should be shortly after the China Water Standards Committee revised its standards for polyethylene water pipes to promote the use of pre-composite materials for pipelines for better quality assurance,” says Borouge.

Borouge is proceeding with the next stage of the expansion of its Ruwais petrochemical complex, which will have a cracking unit with a capacity of 1.8 million tons of ethylene per year.

The new cracking unit, the fourth in the company, will use such raw materials as ethane, butane and naphtha, and will have an overall productivity of olefins and aromatics of 3.3 million tons per year. Borouge construction black polyethylene

According to Scan Report Company Market Report, the estimated consumption of PE in Russia amounted to 889.54 thousand tons in the first five months of the current year, which is 6% more than a year earlier.  Deliveries of all types of polyethylene increased.

Borouge is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Co (ADNOC) and the global petrochemical giant Borealis.  Austrian oil and gas group OMV has a 36% stake in this project.  European producers use naphtha as a raw material, while Borouge 3 will use cheaper ethane derived from gas.
