Oil and Gas projects in United Arab Emirates

Borouge Petrochemicals Project


Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has received a contract from Abu Dhabi Polymers Company (Borouge) to develop front-end engineering and design (FEED) for a section of the Borouge 3 project, a grassroots polypropylene/polyethylene facility in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The Jacobs section will involve the compounding, soaking, and product handling line. The project FEED portion is scheduled to be complete by mid-2010. Borouge is a leading provider of innovative, value-creating plastics solutions. It is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, Austrian-based Borealis, one of the largest largest polyolefin producers in Europe. Together, Borouge and Borealis produce products for high-value infrastructure, automotive and advanced packaging applications.. The Jacobs design will optimize the Boreali proprietary XLPE technology, which creates plastic of an extremely high level of purity. Borealis is the leading global market supplier of this calibre of material, which is manufactured in Stenungsund, Sweden. Jacobs will execute the work from its office in Stenungsund. Borouge was completed in 2014, but the facility is to undergo an expansion phase.
