Sadara will supply ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO) to SDC via pipeline. SDC will specialise in supplying the domestic market’s demand for detergents.
For this, Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) has entered into a supply agreement with Surfactants’ Detergent Company (SDC), a joint venture being developed by a Saudi-South Korean consortium which plans to build a chemical production facility in PlasChem Park, located in Jubail Industrial City II.
The Saudi-South Korean consortium comprises SFC Ltd, a Korean technology provider, and Saudi partners Ahmad Al Amoudi Ltd (AKA) and Maydan Industry for Industrial Developments & Investment Ltd (Maydan Industry). Under the agreement, Sadara will supply ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO) to SDC via pipeline. SDC will specialise in supplying the domestic market’s demand for detergents.
Commenting on the agreement, Sadara’s value park director Mohammad Alazzaz says: 'We welcome the interest of Korean SME’s to participate in our speciality chemicals market which is growing rapidly in line with the move to diversify the kingdom’s economy.
'This consortium between a Korean Speciality company as technology provider and local Saudi Investors and entrepreneurs is a great model of collaboration, combining local talent pools and knowledge with international experience and expertise. SFC’s interest in entering the Saudi market highlights the global interest we have received for the many opportunities PlasChem Park has to offer.'
'Infrastructure development on site at PlasChem Park is nearly complete, with power and utilities tie-ins being finalised in each of the divided lots. PlasChem Park is uniquely positioned to enable and support downstream opportunities in many market segments such as those industries that rely on EO and PO, and we look forward to welcoming SDC to the EO/PO Cluster.
