Abu Dhabi’s $6.2 billion Borouge 4 project to begin operations in 2025

Borouge 4, a new polyolefins complex being built in Ruwais by major shareholders ADNOC and Borealis, is progressing as planned and is set to begin operations in 2025, according to Borouge, a petrochemical company that specialises in innovative and distinctive polyolefin solutions.

The new complex is expected to add 1.4 million tonnes of polyethylene capacity, increasing Borouge’s total annual polyolefins production capacity to 6.4 million tonnes.

Borouge is a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) and  Austrian chemical giant Borealis.

As one of the key pillars of ADNOC’s growth strategy, Borouge 4 will contribute to the continued development of the UAE’s downstream and industry sector.

The plant will help to boost the local supply chain and meet the projected growth in demand for polyolefins in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, while providing critical feedstock to the Taz’iz Industrial Chemicals Zone in Ruwais.
