Sadara start-ups first of its kind mixed feed cracker

Saudi Arabia based producer of petrochemicals Sadara Chemical has started up the first of its kind Saudi Arabia located mixed feed cracker (MFC). The MFC is made up of 12 furnaces, of which, seven will be used to crack ethane, while the rest will crack naphtha. Three of the five liquid furnaces are designed to switch between gas and liquid feedstock.

The MFC will allow Sadara to produce its own basic petrochemicals on-site to be subsequently converted in to value-added products through its up-stream manufacturing units.

It will also allow the company to adjust its production levels of petrochemicals between naphtha-based and ethane-based feedstock in accordance with market demand.

“Sadara's products will help fill a significant gap in a regional petrochemical industry dominated by commodity products, with less than 1 per cent of petrochemical production currently defined as specialty chemicals,” Sadara CEO Ziad Al-Labban said.

“The introduction of the specialty petrochemicals and chemicals will help support the drive to broaden the secondary and tertiary petrochemical manufacturing landscape in Saudi Arabia,” he added. (AR)
