AlwaysFree: Borouge Grants EPC Contract for Borouge 4 Expansion Project


On Sunday, petrochemical major Borouge granted the award of contracts for the expansion of its Borouge 4 manufacturing complex in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

The scope of the award covers engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning activities for the polyolefin complex facilities required to facilitate the full production capacity of two new polyethylene (PE) plants, each with a capacity of 700,000 tpa.

Borouge 4 will boost the company’s annual polyolefin production to 6.4 million tonnes, which translates to a fourteenfold increase in the overall production capacity since the first Borouge facility was commissioned in 2001.

Borouge 4 is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2025

With Borealis AG and Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC), Borouge signed an investment agreement to build Borouge 4 with a value of USD6.2 billion. The facility will utilize Borealis’ proprietary Borstar technology.

The Borouge 4 will capitalize ADNOC’s recent initiatives on clean energy, decarbonizing its power supply through access to Abu Dhabi’s clean power sources, aligned with the UAE Net-Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative. ADNOC’s Carbon Capture unit would reduce CO2 emissions by 80%.

ADNOC will also supply the feedstocks.

Borouge awarded the first package for Early Works of the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) to the construction company Al Asab General Transport and Contracting LLC.

Technip Energies, in a consortium with Target Engineering, was awarded a contract to build the 1.5 million tpa ethane cracker with a contract valued at USD1.58 billion).

Tecnimont  was granted the last three packages of Borouge 4 which included two new PE manufacturing plants and the 1-hexene unit, utilities and offsites, and the construction of 100,000 tpa of the second cross-linkable-polyethylene (XLPE) plant.
