Oil and Gas projects in Saudi Arabia

Crude Oil To Chemicals (COTC) Saudi Arabia


Plans by Aramco and Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) to develop a plant converting crude oil directly to chemicals have attracted strong interest since being separately floated by the companies in the first half of the decade. Anticipation around the so-called Crude Oil To Chemicals (COTC) scheme has surged since the signature of a heads of agreement (HoA) by the parastatal counterparts in June 2016 to co-operate on developing the plant. The facility is expected to be located at either Jubail or Yanbu.
