The UAE-based Borouge, a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Austria’s Borealis, is planning to launch its two PP units at its phase 3 complex in Ruwais at the end of 2014 and in the beginning of 2015, according to market sources. The plants have a combined production capacity of 960,000 tons/year.

Borouge completed construction of the Borouge 3 complex last December. The company started up its 1.5 million tons/year Borouge 3 ethane cracker in Ruwais at the start of June. The company had also launched its 1.08 million tons/year PE plant at Borouge 3 complex.

The company has existing capacities of 2.1 million tons/year of ethylene, 1.14 million tons/year of PE and 800,000 tons/year of PP at its Borouge 1 and Borouge 2 complexes. With the launch of the entire Borouge 3 complex, the company’s total capacity will increase to 3.6 million tons/year of ethylene, 2.6 million tons/year of PE and 1.76 million tons/year of PP.
