Borouge, a joint-venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), one of the world's major oil companies, and Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions, has awarded three major Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts valued at approximately US$ 2.6 billion for its Borouge 3 expansion project in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, in the UAE. These significant investments will expand the production capacity of the plant to 4.5 million tonnes per year (t/y) by 2013, making it the largest integrated polyolefins site in the world.

A contract worth US$ 1,255 billion for the construction of two Borstar® enhanced polyethylene and two Borstar® enhanced polypropylene units, as well as a contract worth US$ 400 million for the construction of a 350,000 t/y low density polyethylene (LDPE) unit, was awarded to the Joint Venture consortium Tecnimont of Italy and Samsung Engineering of South Korea, on a lump sum turnkey basis. The annual capacity of the polyethylene units is 1,080,000 t/y and the polypropylene units, 960,000 t/y.

In addition, a contract worth US$ 935 million for the Utilities and Off-site facilities for the expanded plant was awarded to Hyundai Engineering and Construction of South Korea.

These contracts represent an important milestone in the fulfilment of Borouge's growth strategy in the Middle East and Asia. The investment in LDPE production spearheads the Company's ability to manufacture innovative solutions for the global wire and cable market in addition to the pipe, automotive and advanced packaging markets.

Borouge has already awarded a US$1.075 billion contract to Linde Engineering for the construction of the Borouge 3 ethane cracker and the site preparation is being executed by Al Asab General Transportations and Contracting Establishment.
