The UAE-based Borouge, a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Austria’s Borealis, will double its petrochemicals output at its Abu Dhabi site by the end of the year, according to market sources.

The company started up its 1.5 million tons/year Borouge 3 ethane cracker in Ruwais at the start of June. Once the expansion project is fully completed, the company will expand its capacity more than two fold to 4.5 million tons/year from its existing capacity of 2 million tons/year.

The company has the capacities of 2.1 million tons/year of ethylene, 1.11 million tons/year of PE and 800,000 tons/year of PP at its Borouge 1 and Borouge 2 complexes. The entire Borouge 3 complex is expected to be fully operational by the end of this year.
