Exxon/SABIC choose site for new elastomers/carbon black complex

On March 1, Saudi Basic Industries Corp. and ExxonMobil Chemical Co. announced that they had selected Jubail, Saudi Arabia as the location of a new joint venture plant that will produce EPDM rubber, thermoplastic elastomers (EPDM/TPE, TPO, Butyl, SBR/PBR) and carbon black. The project now moves fully into Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED). Total capacity of the plant will be some 400,000 tonnes/year, though individual capacities were not announced. The project also will include a vocational training institute and product application development and support center.

According to the announcement, the site was selected because of integration opportunities with Kemya Al-Jubail Petrochemical Co., a SABIC/ExxonMobil JV already located in Jubail.
