The Borouge 4 plant is the latest expansion of the Borouge’s Petrochemical Facility, part of a major new downstream facility in the United Arab Emirates
Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has announced a major investment of Dh165 billion ($45 billion) in downstream operations in partnership with other global players over the next five years. ADNOC is looking to build the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemicals facility in Ruwais in the UAE, with Borouge 4 being a significant element of this investment.
Borouge is a joint venture between ADNOC and Austria’s Borealis and sits at the heart of the petrochemical development in Ruwais. The plant will include the world’s largest single train mixed feed steam cracker and associated petrochemical derivatives. The steam cracker will feed units producing polyethylene and polypropylene product, totalling approx. 2.5 million tons per annum. The pre-FEED work for Borouge 4 is a pivotal stage to the investment portfolio at the Ruwais development with its chemicals sector aiming to treble production by 2025 as part of this major development.
Advisian has been awarded the role of preparing the Pre-FEED and Licensor evaluation for the Borouge 4 plant. Advisian will deliver the project with the Project Office and core team based in the UAE, supported by Subject Matter Experts from our Centres of Excellence in London, Houston and Toronto.
Geeta Thakorlal, Managing Director of Advisian’s Front End Hydrocarbons & Chemicals business said “We are delighted to be working with Borouge on this major undertaking. Our successful track record of work in the chemical sector enables us to offer the specialist knowledge that this role requires.”
