According to market sources, Royal Dutch Shell is planning to build a petrochemical complex in Southern Basra, Iraq. The project has been underway since the deal it signed with the Iraqi government in January 2015.

The project will be Iraq’s first large-scale petrochemical project, which will have a capacity to produce 1.8 million tons/year of different petrochemicals and is expected to use naphtha as a feedstock. Details of the project about the expected dates for the start and the completion of construction as well as its planned production span and capacities were not revealed.

Iraq has three other complexes, one in Khor al-Zubair in the south, one in Musayeb near Baghdad and the other in the north, at the Baiji refinery complex. They are all operated by State Company for Petrochemical Industries.
