$380 million contract for Linde in Saudi Aramco-Dow Sadara

The Linde Group (Linde) and Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), the joined venture between Saudi Aramco and Dow Chemical, signed a long-term contract for the gas supply of Sadara Complex in construction in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

Linde will spend $380 million in capital expenditure.

Sadara will be the world’s largest chemical complex ever built in a single phase. The on-site gases supply contract includes a HyCO facility for the production of CO and H2 plus an ammonia plant.

Linde will supply Sadara with:

 – Carbon monoxide (CO)

 – Hydrogen (H2)

 – Ammonia (NH3)

According to Professor Dr Aldo Belloni, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG. this new facility will be the first Linde‘s largest on-site petrochemical project in this region, and first in Jubail. It will strengthen Linde‘s position as a global leader in the generation and supply of carbon monoxide for MDI and TDI production plants at integrated chemical hubs.

Sadara will construct, own and operate a world-scale integrated chemicals complex in Jubail Industrial City II in Saudi ArabiaSadara will have a differentiated product mix, most of which are produced locally for the first time. This differentiation will create further growth opportunities for conversion and downstream industries in the adjacent PlasChem Park.

Linde’s Engineering Division will design, deliver and construct the new turnkey gases facilities at Sadara‘s site in the Jubail 2 petrochemical cluster. The company will be building:

 – a two-stream HyCO plant

 – a single-stream NH3 unit producing waterless liquid ammonia

 – a large NH3 storage tank

The purpose of this design is to enable the plant to run smoothly and reliably at all times.

The contract is based on build and operate format so that  Linde‘s Gases Division is setting up a local gases company for on-site support.

Sadara will use carbon monoxide, hydrogen and ammonia primarily for the production of aromatics, isocyanates (MDI and TDI), amines and hydrogen peroxide.

The production units are scheduled for completion in 2015
