TAIPEI (ICIS)--SABIC, Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Co and Sadara Chemical Co’s joint venture, a 330,000 tonnes/year n-butanol (NBA) plant located in Saudi Arabia, is on schedule to start up in 2015, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

The NBA plant will be located at Tasnee Petrochemicals Complex (Tasnee) in Jubail Industrial City and will be operated by Tasnee, the source said.
