MADRID (ICIS)–SABIC, Saudi Aramco, and PKN Orlen are moving ahead with a feasibility study to potentially build a petrochemicals complex in Gdansk, in Poland’s northern Baltic coast.

The three companies have been mulling the project since January, when they signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

This week, the Saudi petrochemicals major SABIC, its majority owner energy major Saudi Aramco, and Poland’s energy and petrochemicals major PKN Orlen signed a tripartite joint development agreement (JDA) to assess the “technical and economic feasibility” for the project.

“The joint development agreement has embarked SABIC on key steps toward a potential partnership with Saudi Aramco and PKN Orlen in petrochemicals,” said SABIC’s CEO, Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh.

Potential production capacities and financial details were not disclosed.

SABIC had not responded to a request for comment at the time of writing.
