SINGAPORE (ICIS)--The United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) Borouge is in the process of restarting its 1.5m tonne/year ethane cracker and derivative plants in Ruwais, a company spokesman said late on Monday.

The turnaround for the Borouge 2 complex began in early January.

“The Borouge II cracker and plants are being started up and production is being ramped up as planned,” the spokesman said in an email to ICIS. He did not provide further details.

Derivative plants at the site include a 540,000 tonne/year polyethylene (PE) plant and an 800,000 tonne/year polypropylene (PP) facility.

Borouge is a joint venture between Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) and Austria’s Borealis.
