Advisian awarded pre-FEED role for world's largest ethylene steam cracker

Advisian, the global consulting firm of WorleyParsons, has been awarded the role of preparing the pre-FEED and licensor evaluation for the latest expansion of Borouge’s Petrochemical Facility (Borouge-4 Plant), part of a major new downstream facility in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The award comes as Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) announces a five-year investment of Dh165 billion ($45 billion) in downstream operations in partnership with other global players to build the world’s largest integrated refining and petrochemicals facility in Ruwais. Borouge-4 is a significant element of this investment.

Borouge, a joint venture between ADNOC and Austria’s Borealis, has awarded Advisian the role of preparing the pre-FEED and licensor evaluation for the new Borouge-4 Plant that sits at the heart of the petrochemical development in Ruwais. The plant will include the world’s largest single-train mixed feed steam cracker and associated petrochemical derivatives. The steam cracker will feed units producing Polyethylene and Polypropylene product totaling approximately 2.5 million tons per annum.

The pre-FEED work for Borouge-4 is a pivotal stage to the investment portfolio at the Ruwais development with its chemicals sector aiming to treble production by 2025 as part of this major development. Advisian will deliver the project with a core team based in the UAE, supported by the company’s centers of excellence in London, Houston and Toronto.

“We are delighted to be working with Borouge on this major project. Our successful track record of work in the chemical sector enables us to offer the specialist knowledge that this role requires," Geeta Thakorlal, Managing Director, Advisian - Global Front End Hydrocarbons and Chemicals said.
