Sabic starts-up operations at Jubail MEG plant | Energy, Oil & Gas Asia
Petrochemicals giant Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) has begun commercial operations at its monoethylene glycol (MEG) plant in Jubail, which has a production capacity of 700,000 tonnes/year. It began trial operations in late 2021 and was originally scheduled for start-up in 2020.
The financial impact from the operation is expected to begin during Q4-2022, according to a Tadawul bourse filing.
Sabic started trial operations at the United Ethylene Glycol Plant (3) last year.
MEG prices fell around 17% in Q3-2022 as global demand was hit by fears of recession and is currently trading around US$486 per tonne. However, prices are expected to begin recovering from Q4-end, according to Eikon data.
