France's Technip has secured the contract to build a new 110,000 tonne/year halobutyl rubber facility for Saudi Arabia's Al-Jubail Petrochemical Co (Kemya).

Technip's operating centre in Abu Dhabi, UAE, will execute the contract, which will cover the engineering, procurement and construction aspects of the new facility in Al-Jubail that will produce high-quality synthetic rubber polymer, the company said in a statement. Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.

"This project is part of the Saudi Elastomers Program undertaken by Kemya to set up a world-scale specialty elastomers facility to serve local markets, the Middle East and Asia," Technip said.
