Its share of profit from investments in joint ventures for the period shrank also due to higher feedstock and logistics costs, the company said in a statement.

Increased provisions and financial charges also hit profitability for the three months to June 2022.

Second-quarter revenues increased on higher prices and sales volumes of some downstream products, it said.

TASNEE’s petrochemical subsidiaries are Saudi Polyolefins Co (75%) and Saudi Acrylic Acid Co (52.29%), while its affiliates include Saudi Ethylene and Polyethylene Co (45.34%), Saudi Acrylic Monomers Co (39.22%), Saudi Acrylic Polymer Co (39.22%), and Saudi Butano Co (17.43%), according to the company’s website.
