Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC) announced its plans and projects in the petrochemicals industry for the near term, according to local media sources.

The company already remains on track with its new integrated PP plant in Alberta, Canada, which is joint venture between Kuwait’s PIC and Canada’s Pembina Pipeline Corp.

The 250,000 tons/year PP plant in Canada will boost the Kuwaiti company’s international status in the petrochemical industry.

The company also plans to build an aromatics complex in Bahrain including a 1.4 million tons/year of PX plant.

PIC is also interested in several allocation opportunities of crucial projects in the United States and South Korea, for which studies are underway.

In addition, the company reportedly started the economic and technical feasibility studies for the fourth Olefins project in Kuwait.
