Worley joins Borouge development in the UAE
ABU DHABI, May 30, 2022 – Worley has signed a contract with Borouge 4 to provide project management consultancy for the fourth expansion of its integrated polyolefins complex in Ruwais, UAE, the Australian consultancy company announced on Thursday.
Under the contract, Worley is to provide project management consultancy for EPC works on the project.
The fourth phase of the project will see its production capacity of polyolefins raised to 6.4 million tonnes per year, making it the biggest single-site polyolefins complex in the world.
The expansion is expected to begin operations in 2025.
In 2021, a consortium consisting of Technip Energies and Target Engineering Construction Company signed a contract with Borouge 4 for EPC of the project’s 1.5-million-tonne-per-year ethane cracker.
The development also includes two polyethylene plants and a cross-linked polyethylene plant that will have a combined production capacity of 1.4 million tonnes per year.
Borouge 4 is a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Polymers Company, which is a joint venture between ADNOC and Borealis.
