Project Description

Abu Dhabi Polymers Company Ltd. (Borouge) is a Joint Venture Company between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Borealis AS (Borealis). Borouge operates and maintains a Petrochemical Plant located in the Ruwais Industrial Complex (RIC), Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Borouge Head Office is located in Abu Dhabi City.

The first Borouge Ruwais facility commissioned in 2001 had an annual ethylene production of 600 kta and downstream polyethylene production of 450 kta. In 2005 the polyethylene section was ‘de-bottlenecked’ and raised annual polyethylene production to 580 kta. Currently the facility is undertaking expansion known as the Borouge 2 Project scheduled for completion in 2010. This expansion will increase the production of ethylene by 1500 kta to 2100 kta, and the downstream production of polyethylene by 540 kta to 1120 kta and will introduce polypropylene grades at the name plate production capacity of 800 kta.

Generally the proposed Borouge 3 Project facilities will be technically independent from existing Borouge 1 and future Borouge 2 facilities but operated by one integrated organization.
