SINGAPORE (ICIS)--SABIC and Anglo-Dutch energy firm Shell will jointly conduct studies on propylene oxide styrene monomer (POSM) and polyols projects, as a means of expanding their partnership in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi petrochemical giant said on Monday.
Necessary studies will be conducted before the two companies take a final investment decision on the projects, SABIC said in a filing to the Saudi Stock Exchange or Tadawul.
No specific timelines were provided on the studies.
The two companies have an existing 50:50 joint venture in Saudi Arabia Petrochemical Co (SADAF).
“SABIC and Shell have also agreed to build on their strong long-term relationship to explore international petrochemical opportunities beyond SADAF and Saudi Arabia,” SABIC said.
