Petrochemical Conversion Company Announces Successful Delivery of Four Process Modules for its World-Scale Nylon Plant in Al-Jubail
 

Al-JUBAIL, Saudi Arabia-April 13, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE/ME NewsWire)-- Petrochemical Conversion Company Ltd. (PCC) announced the successful transport of four process modules to the Port of Jubail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the company's new world-scale nylon 6,6 plant in Al-Jubail. The nylon 6,6 plant, part of PCC's Nylon and Downstream Conversions Project, is expected to start up in late 2013, and will be the first such project in Saudi Arabia.

The process modules, constructed offshore then transported to Saudi Arabia, weigh nearly 3,000 metric tons. The two largest modules have been transported to PCC's project site, with the remaining modules delivered to the site by mid-April. “Building the equipment in modules significantly accelerated project execution,” said Paul Aegerter, PCC's general venture manager. “We will now focus on successfully installing the equipment safely and commencing commercial operation.”

The project, which includes a nylon 6,6 plant, a nylon compounding plant, and various polymer conversion plants, will have the capacity to produce 50,000 metric tons per year of nylon 6,6, 20,000 metric tons per year of nylon compound, and 120,000 metric tons per year of converted products. The plants will make a wide-range of end-use products expected to include high-performance polyethylene pipe, drip irrigation products, medical disposables, complex caps and closures, pharmaceutical packaging products, electrical fittings and automotive parts.

PCC was formed in 2011 and is owned 50 percent by SIIG and 50 percent by Arabian Chevron Phillips Petrochemical Company Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC.
