HandshakeSINGAPORE (ICIS)--Germany’s Linde Group said in a statement on Monday it has signed a long-term contract to supply gases to Sadara Chemical from on-site plants that are under construction at the chemical firm’s complex at Jubail in Saudi Arabia.

The plants will include a two-stream hydrogen/carbon monoxide (HyCO) facility, a single-stream ammonia plant and an ammonia storage tank, Linde said.

The industrial gases firm will invest around $380m (€285m) in the project, with the production units expected to be ready in 2015, it said.

Sadara will use the carbon monoxide, hydrogen and ammonia primarily for the production of aromatics, isocyanates, amines and hydrogen peroxide, the German industrial gases firm added.

Sadara is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and US company Dow Chemical.
